Tank pad - customized
« on: October 10, 2016, 08:51:41 am »
Hi
Just a heads up.
I was looking for a company that can make a tank pad with my design.
I found one in Cape Town.
Cost R 250-00
from Marc Israel <marc@appleshift.co.za>
I thought it is a good price...use it / don't use it.

Not his avatar?

I wonder if Marc can turn my avatar into a tank pad...

Have just picked mine up - pretty fantastic.
He does other stuff too ( making the boney look pretty :) )
any graphic he can do such as  - apparently the R 1200 sticker he does for R 50-00.
Not bad IMHO

One thing i have found is that the tank pad is too narrow.
After a long ride i find i scrape the tank still on the side from my boot
so I'm gonna make another - just wider. Maybe some flaps down the side...
