which one did you get and how does it mount?

None of the ones on the website look to be made specifically for the VN750 gas cap.

EDIT: just saw it in your signature...doh!
Saddleman Desperado Tank Chap
I have a one that came with my Vulcan. I am not sure of the brand but it is a good thing to have with the small pocket. I carry either my overhead door remote or the case for my glasses in there with a few small other things. Also have had the iPod in there at times. It attaches with laces that tie off out of sight below the tank in front and back, because it is cut specifically for the VN 750 the gas cap keeps it from sliding to either side. I never have had a problem and because it is tight and secure I have held full page envelopes between the chap and the tank for short rides when necessary. I also have spilled a little fuel on the leather and blotted that with just paper towel with no discoloration or change in texture. One day I will use a little leather cream or saddle soap just to be sure it continues to last.

Vulcan2000...can you send or post a photo of the one you have?....it might help me track one down.
No problem. I will get that done this evening. I just went for a test ride this morning of a few Victory bikes and while at the dealer I saw a bike that had a plain bib on the tank but the owner attached his own larger pouch to the bib using three small post nuts. I may be using the wrong term but they are similar to tee nuts except they do not have the prongs that usually stick into the wood. On the back of the bib he placed small round felt dots that you use under lamps and such so as not to scratch top of furniture and in this case not to scratch the tank paint. It was a nice professional look and I am sure it will hold for a long time unless abused.
