Military grade canvas

I have worn holes in my pannier bags, from carrying stuff over the past 5 years.
Not complaining as I use the bike a lot.

Where does one get small sheets of the real good military canvas from ?

It's done that for years. When it did this when I first had it, the local branch guys told me that's why guages were deleted...

The problem is that they are often unsupported on the upgrades, which mean you either cannot use them, you have to modify them to work or you run them with possible issues.

For Sale: VH and VB downpipes

I found two swing=arm downpipes in the garage. Both are in really good condition, with only a few blemishes. One is very likely from a VH500 swingarm with an Iron engine (stub on the head) 1 7/8" at the stub end and 1 3/4" elsewhere - a little yellowing at the head end but really good One ...

Re: Wanted speedometer blanking plate
