Guzzi Police Case

This set of case came with the police Guzzi purchased. There is a round hole looks like a round light mount. Is this the original LAPD case?

Does anyone have a picture when this case is mounted on the bike?

What's the best way to restore this case? Powder coat?

Thank you for the reply,

TT

They are metal bags used by some police departments. Good welder should be able put them back to original.

Bingo!

If you really wanna know what they are "worth", check out what The Cycle Garden charges for repo's.

So, did you buy the bike from the Vanagon mechanic???

Don't get your hopes up by checking out cycle garden.
By their standard my old Ambo was worth $45,000 or so

Can someone recommend any sheet metal repair service in Los Angeles that can do the repair?

Any auto body shop can do it, with no trace of the damage. A heating and air conditioning installer (or you) could probably make a patch panel.
