Wanted Tank Cover In Red

Hi,

Does anyone have a Bagster, Baglux or similar tank cover gathering dust that they will sell?

I am happy to pay a fair price plus shipping to Australia.

P.M me or leave a message on here and I will get back to you.

Cheers

Kenmoore

Just an FYI, I sent a tank cover to AU via US Postal Service and it was only $12 and change. FedX and UPS wanted $100.
And no it wasn't red.

How much does it cost to send a red one?

Just throwing this out there but tank covers/bras whatever do destroy the paint on the tank. Dust and grime act like sandpaper under the cover.

Some people aren't aware. Just wanted to post that.

I have had a tank bra on for about 4 years now and every so often remove it and polish where it sits.

I can take it off and everything is good.

I never wash my bike, only polish it. I try not to ride in the rain however if I do the bra comes of and is dried out before refitting.

I am doing some long trips on the bike and want a cover as I already have a tank bag that will fit any make of tank cover.

Bloody hard to find one now as our bikes are getting old.

That's the $100 price apparently.

I've had a Bagster/Baglux vinyl tank cover on for fiteen years and the tank's paintwork is still as good as new. Plus it protects the paint from fading.

Hahahahahahahah If you want your tank to look like foot ball. Then again maybe you do? It does look like it would offer protection. To goofy for me.

You have enough sun to fade things there?
