    image.jpeg Hi everybody,i didn t really found a nice tank belt,i mean,not really on my taste...then,i decided to do it myself.I m pretty proud of it.The ring on the tank cover is made by hand,at work...and the belt,of leather,is an old belt than i almost never used.and it did cost me 5€ oder so!
    Hope it looks good!

    IMG_0443.JPG I did this a while ago, can be seen in 'switched bars again' thread.
    Much more satisfying to make something from nothing, I think anyway.

    I did it only as decoration...but it supposed to old a "self made" tank on scrambler or cafe racer,instead of proper fixations.

    The Ducati tank protector for the Scrambler is a thin, long, black strip of flexi plastic, why would a leather one be shyte ? Especially if it fits in with the style of the bike.
