New Softail hybrid tank bib design!

Normally new work goes into one big post but this being a new style of Harley tank bib designed by yours truly, it deserves a bit of extra attention.  I’ve noticed over the years that Harley tank bib styles are pretty much the same across the board but certain models had room for improvement.  Specifically, those Harleys with the spring seats like the Softail Deluxe where the seat leaves a portion of the frame backbone visible between the tank and seat.  While the standard rectangle tank bib hides the backbone just fine, there was room for improvement and accenting this area with a bit more style.

I’m pleased to introduce the new Three Mutts Customs Harley “fishtail” tank bib! The top of the bib mates with the speedo bezel flush like usual but the bottom cuts in to fit the lower tank cut out before flaring out again into a tail section that is formed to cover the top AND sides of the exposed backbone.  Hand braided edges or edge piping is included in the base model, including the fat 1/4″ edge piping that matches the black & white diamond stitched seats available from Harley.  Here are a few pictures of the new design.

Our gorgeous model, showing off her new leather top is Gary’s 2012 Harley-Davidson Softail Deluxe.  The attention to detail on this bike is awesome; along with the custom tank bib, it sports custom covers, flushed caps on the gas tank, true duals leading to hand twisted pipes and fishtail exhaust tips and more…doesn’t get much nicer than this!

Embroidery goes wild…on a few fender bibs

Have I mentioned how awesome my embroidery gal is?  She rocks.  This last month I gave her a few challenging pieces and as usual she delivered.  Want proof? Check them out below…

First up is a black pebble grain leather with black hand braided edges rear fender bib for a 2005 Harley Softail Deluxe. It’s sporting all white & black stitching for the “Don’t Tread on Me” snake and banner.  The client’s last name and “Liberty or Death” finish it off nicely.

Next is a black pebble grain rear fender bib with black leather edge piping for a 2010 Harley Dyna Wide Glide.  This one has inlayed Hot Rod Orange flames & double stitching with the iconic half skull in metallic silver snake skin.  This snake skin is as close to chrome as you can get while still being considered leather!

Cheers,

Chris
