    Cigars and Scotch may have disappeared temporarily, but I can answer as to the "make" of these bags, as I have identical bags on my CJ750. They are not historic bags, but recent bags designed and built by Shao Yiqi at http://www.cjsidecar.com/index.htm . You'll find all kinds of great bikes on his website, but no reference to these bags. You can get prices for the bags (and the racks you'll need to carry them) by emailing him at cj_shanghai@yahoo.cn Lao Shao is justly proud of these bags, and I can attest to their durability. If you email him, be aware that his English is rudimentary, but you'll be able to communicate if you keep an open mind. (he has staff with exceptional English who will help when needed.) If you are riding something other than a CJ750, the racks may need modification to fit your bike, but they are very simple steel racks that can be modified easily by any competent welder.
