Here is the start to the new tank bra



These are a few measurements



Here is the finished product,I got the idea from Simbo and Dave,just could not justify spending to much money,cost me £4.00,scrap material from our local market.May put a pocket into it,for my ipod or phone,not to sure yet.Sorry about pics being small,must be doing something wrong.

Alfie you really are an inspiration mate, I am so impressed with the fact that you have made one of these.
This has gotta be another first for suzuki800.com

Couple of questions though, How have you finished the edging? Did you glue it or sew it? Also how have you attached it around the tank?

I wish I could work out what it is that you do to get them so small, I have to go to your photobucket store and replace the pictures you post every time but that's not a problem at all mate

Hi Dave the ends are all sewn together,the way I attached it was to sew J clips at the ends to tuck under the tank.A "J" clip is what you hang your pics/photos on to your wall. Will work on photobucket but not sure what happens,I do everything you say in your vid but they still turn out small.
