Thank you!The 'ledge' you speak of actually sits in a void/vacant area in your palm when you carry the case. My intention was to leave a smooth and flat area at the bottom side of the handle, where most of the weight will be felt by your hand/fingers.

Here is one i made for myself. Saddle stitched by hand, 9spi. 2 compartments. Would definitely change a few things on the next one.
Morning gents. I wanted to find a briefcase to go with my ravello shell; with no luck south of $2000. So i decided to make my own. I mess around with leatherworking in my spare time so decided to take on the project. This is the closest match i could find locally. It's waxed cow shoulder. Super stiff with a great feel/hand. It's fully saddle stitched, by hand, 9 stitches per inch (no machine stitching, no rivets). If i were to do it again i would change a few things. I...
Thanks buddy . Means a lot. I'm happy with it given my budget for the project. The next build i will spare no expense.It rides really well. Feels light for a heavy bike.

It's a 750. And i agree the tanks are not my favorite, but id rather run this rust free, 38 year old, pristine tank over a rusted out pos just for the "look". Shy of a $600 NOS honda tank, this was the best route.
I must say that the nst looks it's best on the plaza or barrie. IMO
ooof. I kick myself for not pulling the trigger on those.Beautiful
Awesome man.You wear them well.
Hey gents! Been a while and life is crazy busy but here is an update of the bike. Ready to hit the road after some carb tuning and a plate. I'm not totally happy with the upholstery ( I stitched it by hand, saddle stitch Hermes style , no machine). It does not flow with the tail section as much as i would like. Maybe less padding in that section... Still some wires to tuck and tidy. Not everyones cup of tea, but for those who are interested...
