I hadn’t realized that I’ve been away from the blog so long, as we’ve been working on the new website, Instagram and Facebook pages!
I’ve got a ton of updates to do along with all the new models of bikes, so stay tuned over the next few days!

To get the blog update rolling, why not feature some of the new bibs we’ve been building for the 2018 Harley-Davidson line up.
There were quite a few changes in 018, some minor and some major changes with only a few like the Touring models; Road King, Streetglide, RoadGlide, etc. staying the same bib wise.

Check out the pics below highlighting the new Softail Slim, Softail Deluxe & Heritage, Fatboy and  and the Three Mutts Customs accessories to go with them!
In a coming post we’ll talk about some of the other new models including the Touring models, Softail Low Rider and others!

Softail Slim – This model got a whole new tank bib and a fender bib hole change.  The Harley tank bib features a bolt cut-out in the rear wings that I can’t figure out, so I modified the design to have a full wing and allowing braided edges to come all the way back to the seat.

Softail Deluxe/Heritage – Like the Softail Slim, these two iconic models picked up a new tank bib shape and fender bib hole placement change.

Fatboy – Big changes here, the 2018 Fatboy picked up a new metal dash piece in place of traditional tank bib and a fender bib hole placement change.
Fender bibs are designed and I’ve worked out a jig and am now starting to make leather replacements for the tank panel

Thanks for looking!

It has been ages since I posted here to the blog, mainly because Facebook and Instagram are so much easier to use.
But it seems a good number of folks keep swinging by to check out Three Mutts Customs so here are a few pics to show what we’ve been up to lately. Of course hand tooled fender bibs, tank bibs and custom bags are still our specialty but now we’re matching to the popular seats more closely.  Mustang distressed brown material is in stock, a new relationship with LePera allows us access to ALL of their materials and Corbin matching material is possible now too!

Custom embroidery in house! An inexpensive way to apply full color designs to your custom bib.

Brown tank bibs material matched to Mustang seats, both in plain and diamond stitch!

More Chaos Pebbles with the new full body and Split Lane designs!

And for those that want to go full tilt for a full custom, there are always hand tooled & airbrushed possibilities.

New artwork option – Laser Engraving!

I’ve been working on a few different options for custom fender bib and tank bib artwork to compliment hand tooled designs for the last year. After researching what is possible, what looks best and performs under the sometimes brutal conditions motorcycle leather can go through I added custom embroidery to the line up late last year.  Embroidery gave folks another option for affordable, full color designs but there was still a gap in the line up.  I wanted another line, one that could provide in stock or fast ship inventory at a great price and still be somewhat customizable.  I was also trying to figure out a way to provide bibs with the possibility of tiny detail, to the level that hand tooling and embroidery couldn’t achieve with prefect clarity.

After long consideration, I’m adding LASER ENGRAVING to the available options for adding designs to your custom leather fender bibs and tank bibs!

Laser engraving is a great addition to our offerings, the detail possible is insanely small and it has a similar appearance to hand tooled artwork for flat two dimensional and line art designs.  It will also allow us to now personalize items like the wallet chain and key chain fobs like never berfore.

Here are a few examples of pieces a few clients have been brave enough to let me experiment with to dial in the process, enjoy!

Embroidery goes wild…on a few fender bibs

Posted in Custom Embroidery, Custom Stitching, Fender bibs, Harley Dyna, Harley Softail, leather, Motorcycles, Softail with tags , , , , , , on May 20, 2014 by Chris Wright

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

Coordinating and matching motorcycle leathers

Hey folks, Happy St. Patty’s Day!

I wanted to touch on matching and coordinating custom tank and fender bibs with your existing theme, color scheme or factory gear.  Now, having your gear match isn’t a necessity especially if function is your goal but if you are looking for a clean look to show off at Bike Night and such, coordination can make or break your look.

There are a ton of materials out there but in general there are a fixed number of suppliers so getting a good match or a close match for a tank bib or fender bib is usually possible.  Bigger companies like Harley will subcontract their materials so they are exclusive but close alternatives can be had if you know where to look. Matching another custom maker is also possible when good pictures and references are provided.

This post is picture heavy but I wanted to give you good folks some inspiration for your own matched sets and to show what is possible. None of these bikes were local so everything was done via pictures, emails and most importantly…good communication!

Enjoy!
