Tank Bib

Have been looking for a while and just could not find one I liked so said what the heck will just make my own! Thought it turned out pretty well.

pretty snazzy steve.. not sure on the red piping but the f/s patch and the studs look really good.
i bet there are a few owners that would buy one of those if you started making them

I think the red stitching looks great. Goes well with the red pinstripe in the tank.
Nice job.

That's awesome!
I posted a thread a while ago looking for a tank bib, but nobody seems to make them for the VN750.

If you do make these I am definitely interested. I was looking for one with a pouch if possible.

I'd like to see how you made this and how do you attach it to the tank. I never owned a tank bib, so it's still all a mystery to me how these attach
