    The leatherwork I got done by a friend of mine in Italy. He's got an Etsy shop by the name Maxakaido and is also on Instagram (@maxakaido). He makes stuff for all makes and models. The only gripe I have with these bags is that the leather straps included are really thin and tend to make the bag sag with all the locks I throw in it hahahaha.

    Yessir! Brace and fender are stock, but I'm currently debating whether or not to keep the brace though. Thinking about chopping the fender a tad shorter too and pairing it with a tail tidy. Only when it warms up here, don't have a heated garage where I'm renting at the moment hahaha.

    I’m not feeling that one
    I want one somewhat like the one MG offers but made to fit around a smaller flushed fuel cap

    Work with me MAN !!!! :D

    Yes - I understand - that one is a Bit larger than Life - Now if you were the Old Western type and in Montana maybe it could work.
    If Max is doing all this as custom work on order he could probably make you just what your looking for ?

    Guys, nothing to do with this thread, and second, you do know I can do custom leather work like this, right?

    Yes, we've done a few tank straps to match the seats. We can do the side panel pouches as well, but last I asked, no one took me up on it, as they'd rather send their money to France. ;)

    Heyo! Sorry for the late reply, but yeah, Max can do tank straps. He lets you pick leather and thread colour, and of course you can work with him to make something of your design. I saw one rider put cigar tubes on his tank strap lol. Depending on where you are though (and how good your Italian is), it may be better to get Todd to make it for ya lol. If you do go Max's way, tell him CJ sent you!

    Max should be able to design something. Otherwise, there's this other leatherworker I follow that has this tank strap(attached).

    Cipifer Leatherworks, but not sure if he has an Etsy shop. I see them on Instagram @cipifer_leatherworks

    Pretty impressed with the work Todd's shop did to my seat. Black leather with grey stitching to match my tank. Perfect comfort and some nice leather.

    I'm not surprised to be honest. Todd and his crew have always done top-notch work for me.

    Ooooo, very tasty. You have any more pictures?

    Hey Todd, any knowledge on what kind of leather your leatherworker uses? Vegetable or chrome tanned for example?
