Default Who could make me a Willie G skull rear fender bib?

I was looking to put a rear fender bib on my '07 street bob and thought some leather with the willie g skull would be a nice touch, I assume there isnt one out there so id have to get it custom made? Thoughts?

I have a friend who does custom embroidery if you could get the blank bib. Just have to make sure that Willie does not want to pull the trademark thing.

C&C can make a custom bib. I am not sure about adding the actual Willie G skull since it is a trademark of Harley.

With all the custom paint jobs with HD logos and Willie G., I doubt they would even care about trademark issues. I think it would just be up to the individual doing the work if they cared.

Ya the embroider thing is an option I just like the subtle look of either punched or raised leather.

Anybody who does leather carving. It's surprisingly easy. If oyu have artistic ability, you could buy a piece of leather from Tandy and a kit of tools and do it yourself. Even easier, you could buy a plain rear fender bib and put a Willie G chrome medallion on it.

That might be the best idea I've heard all day, worth looking into.
