I am currently working on this Road Star:

The saddle bags are hard style which leads me to believe they are not true leather. The seat is a Mustang seat so I am thinking it is leather. Normally I have used 303 fabric guard for the leather seats and been done. I am out of 303 and I don't know what to use on the bags since they seem to be fake. I have PERL, Wolfgang interior and exterior trim sealants so I need a little help! No one locally has 303 fabric protect, I do have 303 protectant as well.

Some teasers for the bike:

You've likely moved on at this point but I figured I'd chime in here on the Mustang seat in case you run across another one. They are not leather, Mustang uses a premium vinyl.

Bike turned out great!

Mustang seats can be made in leather or vinyl. I prefer vinyl because it withstands weather better (like moisture). If your seat is leather or vinyl, you can use a product by 3M called Leather and Vinyl Restorer. Safe on both. You can use it on your bags as well. It probably has UV light protection. I am using it on all my upholstery now, although I am familiar with the 303 protectant and I use that too. You can find it at most reputable marine stores. It is used along with 3M products by boat owners to protect upholstery from sunlight damage.
