Vintage tail pack

Hi all, I recently picked up this lovely antique leather case which was apparently used by an electricity board. I bought it with the aim of mounting it to my fender rack but having offered it up I'm not sure whether it suits. What do you guys think?

IMHO it's a bit too tall, but it is an interesting look. Maybe get a shot taken with you sitting on the bike?

I'm inclined to agree with you - doesn't look too bad from the left but definitely looks too tall from behind and the right. I could lay it on its side but I'm not sure how practical this would be with a side opening. I appreciate your opinion, thanks.

I love the look of the box but it just doesnít fit visually in my honest opinion. I think anything higher than the seat itself ruins the lines of the bike.

I like the idea of using vintage leather case on a Bobber but not sure the proportions are correct. I,m on the lookout for something similar but about one third the size. If you want to sell the case I,d like to buy it as an ornament in my lounge.Lionel

He already has one, the other bag is nice but really has no place on the bobber.

No doubt itís been done by someone already but I suspect a correctly sized vintage ammunition box would look pretty cool and in keeping with the intended era of the Bobber.
