Hey folks, I’ve been working on a number of big jobs lately so the posts are fewer and farther between.  I’ve just never felt the blog was the place for in process stuff so i started a new Instagram account for in process pics and quick posts and will reserve the blog for finished items, rally info and such.  For those of you that subscribe though, I thought I would share a few of the long term toolings that I’ve been working on to keep you in the loop.  If you have Instagram, check me out there by searching for #threemuttscustoms.  Enjoy the pics!

I’ve been busier than usual in the shop and at the day job lately so I haven’t had much time to post in the last week and half.

Things haven’t slowed down but I thought I would pop in here and share some pictures of recent work for you boys and girls to check out.
I started an Instagram account recently as it is super fast for sharing pics of finished and work in progress items.  #threemuttscustoms to find my pics please use it if you post pics of your gear in Instagram!

Now for the pics…enjoy!

New Softail hybrid tank bib design!

Posted in custom work, Harley Fatboy, Harley Softail, leather, Motorcycles, New Items, Softail, Tank bib, Tooled Leather with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 20, 2014 by Chris Wright

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!

To try and catch up on updates, here is a small assortment of recent fender bibs I’ve made for clients. Notice the new addition to the bike list, the 2013 Suzuki C90T “Boss” fender bib is now a regular pattern and the C50 is coming soon.

This was a big Harley-Davidson Softail month for some reason, had a Deluxe, a Deuce and a couple of Heritage requests come in along with a 2014 StreetGlide and I still have work to finish up on a Crossbones, a Dyna Fat Bob, a Fatboy, a Road King and another Softail Deluxe before the month is over!  Enjoy the pics and check the blog for some other new updates…

Cheers,

New bib in the Etsy shop!

Hey folks, I have a new inventory piece ready to ship out to the first one that grabs it! I had some extra time last week so to keep idle hands from causing trouble I made up this Harley tank bib. It is available in the Etsy shop and is ready to ship next day.  It is the usual high quality Herman Oak A grade saddlery leather with kangaroo edge lacing, both in black with the half-skull tooled into it.

This tank panel fits all Road Kings, Softails, Fatboys and Dynas with the 5″ wide square bottom dash.  The lower hole is punched to fit up to the late model tank bolts but it also has chrome eyelets and comes with 3′ of paracord to tie under the backbone for older models where the tank bolt location is different.  $85 plus shipping takes this one home so it won’t last long!

Here is a pic of the bib available and a couple of how this style bib looks on a few client bikes. Enjoy!

August was a fun month for custom rear fender bibs and custom tank straps & bibs. Had a few Harley and Honda projects come through each with a slightly different combination of options that kept the shop work interesting.  Hand tooled artwork, hand painted designs and some custom embroidery were in there and to top it off I shipped to some new international locations as well as some previous ones including; Great Britain, Canada, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Australia.

Without further adieu, here are the pics…
