Thanks for the lead. A friend and I both own Nomads and have been looking for someone who was making tank bibs for our bikes. Will be checking them out.
Like Vulcanader said, sometimes it is out of necessity. The previous owner of my Nomad made a mess of the top of the tank between the pin stripes.
I ordered this one a little while ago http://www.moto24.co.uk/hepco-becker-tankcover-buffalo-kawasaki-vn-1700-classic.html Found it in the 1700 gear thread.
At $227 shipped it is a good bit higher but still a good bit less than half what it would cost to paint and re-stripe to original color.
They haven't arrived yet. When they do I will post a 1st impression here.Hey TS Tinker,
It's hard to tell by looking at the picture, but how do these pouches close. Is it a snap or something?
Very hard to swallow but I have been looking for one that shape to cover some paint imperfections for a long time.Considering that I paid $35 for a leather bib with storage for the mean streak, $200 is a little hard to swallow. I've bought some nice leather jackets for $200. Does look good though.
I like the woven edge much betterI received mine today and I was so impressed with it, I just had to call Frank personally and let him know.

I'm not a big 'studs' guy so this is just what I wanted for a nice clean and slick look. The fit is perfect and hugs each edge as if it was straight from the dealer. It's true, you get what you pay for.
