This old 1979 was first posted on this site as old faithful, it had a beautifull paint job that unfortunatly got damaged, so I decided to go full leather… The side covers & tank are now coverd in black leather with a brown leather trim to hide the seems, I live in the country and wanted to give my bike a western look, I also made a 30/30 holster for my iron horse that really carries my tools when I go in the city, I wanted to give the bike a new look while keeping the bike as original as possible.
The bike get’s plenty of attention for obvious reasons, a few cops saw me ride by with my 30/30 holster and amazingly never stopped me, I guess it’s only a matter of time ? All the leather work was done by myself, including the seat. The motor was rebuilt and a new Boyer Bransden ignition system will soon be installed, amazingly this bike still runs as good as it did when I first got it 32 years ago.
p.s. I never saw a full leather tank before, have any of you ?
Keep safe and keep Riding… Bones
