    I changed my seat and the new one was shorter, that let appeared a part of the tank.
    Harley sells the little leather piece for some $$ but i found here and there some re-usable parts to make my own for cheap.
    A plastic oil qt can, a piece of false leather (i don't remember the word in english), some neopren glue, a pair of cisors, and here we go ... (here is the slideshow just below).

    ImageShack(TM) slideshow

    Ok that doesn't look like a pro's work but, that will do the job.

    Looks good to me
    always nice to see some imaginative work rather than spending money at the dealer and im sure youll never see another the same

    Thank you Brian.

    The false leather word could be "naugahyde, vinyl or synthetic". I admire your command of more than one language.

    I think your cover looks very good. Nice thinking.
