FREEWAY COLLAR TABS
PRIMARY CHAIN TRIM PATCH
Remember when the primary chain belts came out? I bought one out of Easyriders magazine.
You sized it with a chain breaker, I did and it was pretty cool.....
The problem was, the damm thing was so heavy, my pants kept falling
down..... After about a week of constantly pulling my pants back up,
I gave up! I was really bent, twenty-two bucks!! A friend,
listening to me rant about the twenty-two bucks said "Why don't you make your
own belt, embroider the chain on, like a patch?" Hey???
Several versions of that idea were tried, embroidering on a leather belt,
making a long patch and riveting a buckle on the end and a half a dozen
more dumb ideas, all without any success. Disgusted, after a
month of fooling with it, I thru the whole mess in the trash. I was
standing there, thinking about all that wasted time and money, and it
dawned on me..... Why not a patch? So, I dug my failure back
out of the trash. Cut one of the failed belts to fit the back of my
Levi's cut-off and sewed it on....... pretty cool! Turns out other people
thought so as well. This re-issue is 15" long and 2" wide, scanned
from the original 1973 art work. Three color embroidery on black polyfelt and heat sealed on the back to stabilize. This patch
works on just about anything your imagination can come up with. Cut-offs, leather vests and jackets,
you name it. I've seen them made into epaulets, chokers, wrist bands,
dog collars, sewn around the cuffs
of Levi's jeans, even used to trim saddle bags.... This parts
up to you. ....
