This was a request from a lady down in Georgia with a killer Sportster 883 Lo (with the 1200 tank).
She was looking for a winged skull design but wanted to really accent the lines of the bike with a head turning style.

Both bibs were done in our original Chaos Pebbles Split Lane design with the winged skull laid out to have the wings slightly overlap the center bar to give it more visual depth.
A red accent stitch line and hand braided edges finish the custom bibs off with a splash of color.  Something new for us, the client measured out her bike and we make the Sportster fender bib fit from tail light bracket to seat bolt for full coverage, worked out nicely and is super secure!  below are pics of the Winged Skull Sportster custom tank & fender bib set.  I also added a couple of other Sportster custom bibs for more inspiration!

Western and Floral themes for Harley accessories

With more and more women buying Harleys every year and taking to the road, I’ve seen an upswing in more feminine designs for the leather accessories.  This is great as they can be fun to tool and something you don’t always see at a bike show.  Done well, floral designs can really add a fun look to the bike.

For the guys, similar designs evoke a vintage or Western theme, adding some authenticity to a gunslinger style many like.

With so many styles of flowers, vinework, and then adding in other bits like guns, butterflies, crosses, or even skulls, you can really make your floral hand tooled leather Harley tank bibs, fender bibs, bags, and other accessories truly one of a kind.  We can alter existing designs or draw up something completely unique for your ride.

Here is a new style of custom leather motorcycle & bicycle tool bag I designed. This 4″ round x 12″ long bag is designed to be mounted on the handlebars or under the headlight or behind a spring seat.  The flip open flap exposes the zippered pocket, making it very weather resistant but easy to access.  They can be tooled, engraved and airbrushed for a unique style, check out the pics below!

Started my day by checking email and finding my client Dave had sent in pics of the “Axis Nightmare” custom rear fender bib installed on his Harley Fatboy Lo. No question about it, that is a sexy rear fender bib…and bike and Mustang and shop…yeah, I’m jealous. 😉  Hand tooled, airbrushed and hand braided triple loop laced edges.

Enjoy the pics and have a happy Monday!

New custom Harley Road King tank bib design

After learning last month that the 2013 Harley Road King has an option for a one piece dash and making a tank bib that didn’t work for that application I worked it out with the client to create a new design and revisit his artwork with a splash of color.

After a couple of sessions of working on it, here is the result. The design fits around the ignition switch and runs down the dash to bolt to the lower tank bolt under the seat. The custom eagle and warrior feathers artwork was hand tooled and painted and the edges were hand braided with turquoise kangaroo leather lacing imported from Australia.

Had a couple of new and cool custom leather Harley fender bibs and a tank bib roll out of the shop this week and it got a little crazy with color around here.

I added a new example to the Suzuki Boulevard C90T Boss custom fender bibs, this one was engraved on the new laser and then finished and laced by hand.

The Frankenstein bib was made for a 2013 Harley StreetGlide and the Blackhawk fender bib and Senior Aviators tank bib is for a 2003 Softail Heritage. All three were hand tooled and hand painted with Citadel and Vallejo acrylics.

Enjoy!

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!
