LV_96-883_lt_sideWith winter ending and the 2013 riding season starting with a roar, this edition features a sweet Sportster just perfect for cruisin’ the warm summer months.  While I didn’t do all of the leather for Tony’s 1996 883 (I did the pin-up rear fender bib), it all comes together along with some little extras he had custom made.

Starting off with a full big bore 1200 kit installed, Tony also had the wheels, primary, forks,and rocker box covers custom powdercoated.  Combine that with a number of chrome accents and the custom paint and it’s looking pretty mean. Top it off with custom one of a kind leatherwork that he designed himself and Tony’s Sportster is a definite looker.  Leaving no cap unturned, he even designed a set of custom made caps for the fork nut covers that are worth a look at.  Speaking of looking…read on for the pics, enjoy!

Two of a kind…matching to seats

One of the things I have been working on this year is a line of tank straps and fender bibs for Harleys to match up with the more popular seats, Danny Gray in particular.  Having now found a source for the same black pebble grain and medium brown distressed leather Corbin, Danny Gray and others use on their seat tops, in a few short weeks I’ll be announcing the official start of offering these bibs.

Here’s a sneak peek at one of the first ones out of the shop.  The outer band is a thicker veg-tan leather that can be dyed various colors (except white and gray) and allows the bib to be somewhat formed to the fender and also allows for chrome spots, stitched or hand braided edges and even some small tooling detail unlike any other material matching bib on the market! Shortly after we’ll also be offering up the exotic printed leathers to match as well including shark, ostrich, elephant, gator and custom prints like asphalt & carbon fiber for inlays!

Ride safe folks, summer is coming!
