Made up a tank bib to fit the new Indian Scout. 

Now that I have the pattern down I am going to try to make up a few different styles.

That is gorgeous!  The color and texture of the leather play so well against that shiny red paint.

I am always impressed by these things.  How, may I ask, are they attached?

Thanks All.  The pattern matches my seat re-upholstery.  This was initially going to be a plain prototype but I can't leave anything plain for some reason.

 

It attached under the front of the seat via a hole that allows the front seat post to go through it.

In the front it attaches by a strap that feeds through the tank bib and goes around the frame, in front of the gas tank.

I will try to get some pictures to show what I mean.

A lot of people use Velcro to attach it to the tank but I didn't want to stick Velcro on my tank and wanted to see if I could some up with a different way.

Thanks for the details.  I had no idea folks were using velcro!  Explains a lot.  I like your idea for attaching a bit better.

Watch for gas split on the leather. Can damage the color. 

Great job. Keep going.

Thanks for the heads up and compliments.  I will definitely be watching that.
