Tank Bib for the VN750

Hey VN750 riders... There is a guy online at www.classicchaps.com who makes tank bibs for the big Vulcans. While having a discussion with him about my Nomad, he looked at my webpage and saw my VN750 and sent me the email below. This tank bib looks AWESOME and it is made FOR the VN750. The price is good too. For anyone who has scratched their tank with their zipper or metal on the vest, this tank bib is a must have item. Check it out and if you are so inclined, order one. Mention that The Bulldog sent you...

If the pictures don't come through, let me know and I'll post them on my site. Jeff @ Classic Chaps doesn't have pictures of this up on his site yet - they are that new!!!

Bulldog, that is my vn750 that Jeff used to fit the prototype, those are the pictures I took after I put the tank bra on.. pretty nice looking bike if I do say so

His product is great in both fit and quality, do not hesitate to buy one, you won't be sorry.

If it were a little further up on the tank (to hide the slight dent in mine) I'd probably get one.
Looks really nice, that's for sure!

I asked the same question and was told that you do need to remove the seat but that the tank doesn't have to be removed. Under the tank, there is elastic that helps keep the bib tight and looking right.

This is one of the nicer aftermarket accessories that I've seen for a VN750 in a while and I would like to encourage the members here to look into this product. I continually hear people lament about the lack of farkles for the VN750 so when I see someone going out of their way to make quality aftermarket accessories for the model, I hope that we reward them by taking advantage of their offer.

Me personally, as someone who has some major scuffage on the bottom of my tank from my vest extenders and the seat, this tank bib will be on my list of items to have when I get the VN750 back on the road when it warms up.

It is simple to remove, take off the seat, undo the rear od the bib and slide the elasic off from under the front of the tank...less than 5 minutes
