The black leather shell shows normal age crazing and wear. The smooth finished leather is in good condition having no serious defects. The front leather visor has a steel trim in very good condition. The metal spine that descends from the spike's baseplate to the edge of the rear visor is in good condition and is the style with vent slide.
