I hope I've posted this in the proper place.
I'm making some bar pads for an old school bmx bike. I can't seem to find any good fabric. I'm looking for something synthetic like nylon. Something that would be fairly dirt resistant & tough (I already thought about dying the cotton checker fabric that I can find, but that'd dirty easily, I think).
basically, I'm looking to make exactly this:
but instead of yellow, hot pink & black.
does anyone have a good supplier for fabric like this? I've looked all sorts of places, even industial upholstry shops, ebay, google, & the like. I know some must exist because the company yanco pads that makes top tube pads for fixed gears makes a pad using the exact fabric I'm looking for. It's just not the same type of pad I'm looking to have, otherwise I'd just support them.
any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated. thank you so much in advance!
