Hey folks, Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I wanted to touch on matching and coordinating custom tank and fender bibs with your existing theme, color scheme or factory gear.  Now, having your gear match isn’t a necessity especially if function is your goal but if you are looking for a clean look to show off at Bike Night and such, coordination can make or break your look.

There are a ton of materials out there but in general there are a fixed number of suppliers so getting a good match or a close match for a tank bib or fender bib is usually possible.  Bigger companies like Harley will subcontract their materials so they are exclusive but close alternatives can be had if you know where to look. Matching another custom maker is also possible when good pictures and references are provided.

This post is picture heavy but I wanted to give you good folks some inspiration for your own matched sets and to show what is possible. None of these bikes were local so everything was done via pictures, emails and most importantly…good communication!

Three Mutts and a Big Dog…

a 2007 Big Dog Mastiff that is…yes, I have finally found someone wanting to leather up a Big Dog chopper and Mike’s blue and silver beast looks sweet with it. Mike picked up a custom Danny Gray seat with blue stitched flames not too long ago and asked if they knew someone who could/would make a bib to go along with it.  A few conversations and stitches later and Mike’s sporting a tuxedo style tank bib with a royal blue maltese cross inlay with silver heavy stitching.  Enjoy the pics…
