Brown Gas Tank Knee Pads

I thought I would like brown tank pads to go along with my brown seat and my brown handle bar grips.



I sprayed the Triumph pads with SEM 15023 Cordovan Brown 13Z Color Coat. I like the look so far. I think they will stand up to wear and tear. We'll see.

Nicely done

Great contrast with the black of the bike, lovely.

Cheerio,

Great color match! I can't decide if I like it or not. Fortunately, it doesn't matter one little bit whether I like it or not...lol If YOU love it, then that's all that really matters. I've seen some brown leather ones that looked good, but weren't as good a color match, and ultimately I think the color match is what gives the bike a cohesive look. Any shots from farther back to get the whole bike's look (grips and all)?

Each one matters.

I can't decide either. Sometimes I like the look and sometimes I don't. Fortunately the pads are easy to remove.

I'll take some shots with the bike parked outside. I might get a truer color. The seat and the pads match perfectly but in "real life" the seat and the pads are a much darker brown. (I didn't pay too much attention to white balance when I took the shot.)
