  1. Nice looking work, dobie collars look great but I really like that yellow thread on the black . David
  2. I like those they look really good and it's neat your using something you already had. David
  3. Couple years ago I took some about 2-3 in wide by about 8-9 inches long scraps and put some of the bells that you can get from Michaels or other craft shop punched some holes and used some leather lace to attach the bells and then left it hanging. I forgot how to shrink pictures so I can't put them on but I just had 2 holes for each bell took the lace and knotted it started at the top from behind and laced the bell on and then back thru the second hole to the back came out for the next bell then back thru the second hole until the bells were on then I left the lace hanging below the leather. To make the hole for the door knob just punch a hole the size of the narrow part of the door handle where it will set. Then make a slit on the top and bottom of the whole so it will fit over the handle. Make sure you end the slits with a punch so the leather doesn't split. I just dyed mine but you could stamp or paint whatever you wanted on them. Hope this helps. David
  4. I looked at it and agree with Halitech on the eyelet and carrying it on a key chain like that it will fall out or either bend the end up or worse get something in it. If it's not an important flash drive you could put a little rubber cement on it when you put it together and that should help keep the drive in the holster but then you would have to leave it in there all the time. That means you have to either take it off the keychain or have your keys plugged into the computer. At least you would always know where your keys are. Another idea would be to make it set deeper in the pocket and have it hang from the other end so it doesn't try to fall out. Just some ideas. I do congratulate you on designing something yourself that is really great so keep it up. David
  5. Nice work again as usual, looks good on the bike. David
  6. I live in Amarillo and it's pretty nice to be able to go there because they would let me go through the stack and pick what I wanted. They are good people and I've always been treated well by them. David
  7. Great work as always benlilly, love the colors. David
  8. That looks really good, some of the best stuff happens when you have an idea and work it through the process. I like the colors also. When I first saw it on the bike I thought it didn't really go well but it grows on you. Nice work and thanks for posting the Picts of it on the bike. David
  9. Looks good, I liked the video also. David
  10. Looks sharp David
  11. That looks really sharp with good detail to it. I would have to try it before I rode with it on, (fogging up glasses),but you did a great job on it. Thanks for posting it. David
  12. That is nice work. The pictures were also well done. Good job. David
  13. I think they came out pretty good for a first pair. I don't know about a keeper, it wouldn't be hard to rig up but I would wear them for a while and see if the strap curls too much or catches on stuff first. Thanks for posting them. David
  14. Go to a hobby shop and get some of the foam sheets that kids cut up to make stuff out of it comes in about paper size sheets and about a 1/16 thick and sandwich it between the strap and lining. David
  15. I have a bag I made that sits on the back fender of my dyna a couple of years ago. It has eaten into the paint a little in a few places don't know if it is all the vinagroon or if some of it is dirt rubbing because it is always on the bike in any weather. I thought I had neutralized it all but maybe not. If I did it again I would have lined the back with felt. Hope this helps some. David
