OK, so if someone knows where I can get a bib that will fit my 93 vt1100, please let me know now. :)

Anyway, I see that the 750 Aero's have quite a selection and a few others, but no vt1100's. I decided it can't be THAT hard to make one, right? :mrgreen:

So, I made a template using a chamois. Took 5 min to quick cut it up. Now, just got to find some leather and someone who knows there way around sewing and such...

Has anyone else done this before? I really like the look of a solo seat, but with the pinstriping only going halfway up the fender, electrical wire and seat bracket, a bib is needed.

OR there is this one:

Search for a fender bib, Dunesgirl did a really good looking one that she did one heckuva job on one earlier this year. She gave a very detailed description to us all. Check it out.

siryan, your thread is actually where I got my idea from. So you just had to trim it length wise? Your spirit has the same dimensions as my vt 1100, right?

Well, its a 93, so I don't know if they actually called them spirits then... but I think they are the same? Don't they make a bib for our bikes?...thought I saw one somewhere.

Now, on Dennis Kirk, they show a few seats that fit both my bike and some of the newer ACE's and Sabres... And they have bibs for those bikes...think they'll fit mine?

I made mine. Cut it out of an old car bra I got free. I lined it with felt to keep it from chafing the tank.
