so I had some mods planned for the winter but unfortunately my paint job fell through..so I was thinking maybe I could do an oversized fender bib and a new tank bib to customize her up..then I had it priced out ! Ouch! I just don't have the $$ to have the leather work done so..I figured after talking to a great guy on facebook that talked me into giving it a try myself I have saved a huuuuge chunk of $$ and made my own.
the fender bib ...

I have new plans for a new tank bib to be honest with you..It works great right now but need more "me" style to it I think.
comments and critique always welcome :)

drew up the picture, bought some leather, sized out the bib with paper first on my fender/tank then traced it to the leather..traced on the final drawing and then tooled the hell out of it lol , dyed it, laced and it backed it with felt.

I appreciate all the comments..I admit it feels great to know I'm on the right track. It would seem my Wife agrees as well and decided the other week how great it would be to have a tank bib on her bike as well :) so after a week of ideas and scetches and tooling and frustration..I give you... the phoenix tank bib:

As a teenager I did leather work. I had all the leather working tools.Made several western belts and billfolds. 
 That is one of the things in my life I let get away after I married and did the Military thing. I admire T66's talent and understand the pride he must have in these bib's.
  Great work T66.  Hand crafted tank & fender bibs  3498837457  Hand crafted tank & fender bibs  65147
