  2. There is a solution for the broken Photobucket image issue on forums. If you use Firefox or Chrome, go into the Extensions (Chrome) or Add-Ons (Firefox) and search for "Photobucket Embed Fix" - it will have an icon that looks like a green piece from a jigsaw puzzle. Install the extension/add-on, restart your browser (Chrome) and you should be able to see all of the Photbucket images again.

    I put together a basic step by step about this leather fork stopper that I made to match these grips I made. You can see the grips here. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=57728

    Leather cut to size. Drew a grid on the leather with a pencil. Stamped using drill press. Arbor press would be much better.

    Fininshed embossing

    Sanded the edges round then colored leather with leather dye.

    Drilled holes using drill press and started lacing.

    Lacing complete. I put a cork backing in for grip, padding and to wick any potential moisture away from the paint.

    Finished lacing, facing down. Then applied finish top coat to leather.

    Done!
