So what is Chaos Pebbles?

chaos-pebbles-1One of my signature designs is the Chaos Pebbles ‘Split Lane’ tooling pattern.  Over the years it has become my most popular request; it is unique, interesting and definitely not ordinary.  Back in 2012, a client came to me and asked for a custom Honda fender bib that no one has seen before…he gave me full creative license as long as it was cool looking.  Over the course of the job I designed his bib and then developed a six step process so that each future bib would have a unique fingerprint-like background tooling.  No two bibs are exactly the same but matching sets including handlebar bags, tool bags, swingarm bags, tank & fender bibs as well as wallets and belts could all be done.

Since then, it’s been refined and I’ve added laser engraved center icons as well as hand tooled versions to allow folks to share their interests, hobbies, logos, and more; all set in a unique pattern.  Today, this is my most popular custom Harley fender bib design and with the addition of the colored accent stitch lines, it personalizes even further.  Add Chrome spots? No Problem!  I’ve laid them out to fit on the outside or down the center bar, we can even do black pyramid spots for those wanting a more aggressive look.

Scroll down to see some of the newer, updated designs I’ve done on custom Harley fender bibs, tank bibs and bags in the Chaos Pebbles design.  Take a look and drop me a line when you’re ready to order your own custom Harley bib set!

New Custom Harley tank bib style – Floral Corset!

Posted in Fender bibs, hand tooled, Harley Davidson, Harley Softail, leather, Leatherwork, Motorcycles, Tank bib, Three Mutts Customs, Tooled Leather with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 28, 2018 by Chris Wright

This was a Christmas tank bib request from a client and has proved to be very popular with the lady riders that follow the Three Mutts Customs facebook and Instagram pages.
A solid leather core, overlaid with any number of colors, in this case light gray, and then topped with a hand tooled and braided leather corset piece.  In the photos, the tank bib is shown on a 2018 Harley Softail Deluxe but it can be made for any Harley and a number of imports.  The floral pattern was laid out to flow with the bib, other flowers like daisies, traditional Texas roses, etc. can be substituted.

Thanks for looking!

Custom leather swingarm bags!

Over the last year, I spent quite a bit of time stepping up and improving the swingarm bag designs for Harley Softails.
Nearly all of the Softails, inlcuding the Breakout and Fatboy use the same mounting platform (except the cool Deluxe’s and Vicla’s with true dual exhaust) so most bags are about the same size and shape.  Earlier this year, I added a compact version to give two options on size.  The standard size is a good day trip bag and 4″ deep to allow for more gear.  The compact version tapers up a bit more at the rear to follow the swingarm angles tighter and is a touch less wide to allow for side mount license plates to be used with it.

All of the bags now feature a fabric lined interior to keep your goodies free of leather fuzz or dye rub off some other bags end up with.
New clasp options were added as well – we now offer traditional roller buckles, a nicer trunk style clasp and the newest addition – polished aluminum quick releases.
No more need to hide ugly black plastic quick releases behind faux buckles…let them shine and enjoy a new look at the same time.

As with everything we do, the Three Mutts Customs swingarm bags can be hand tooled or laser engraved saddler leather or we can material match to your aftermarket seat for a tight matched set.

Check out the pictures below for inspiration and drop me a line with questions or ordering info.

Happy Holidays!

2018 Harley model bibs are here!

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!

“God of War – Kratos” 2018 Softail Deluxe bib set!

Posted in airbrushing, Fender bibs, Harley Davidson, Harley Softail, leather, Motorcycles, Tank bib, Three Mutts Customs, Tooled Leather, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2018 by Chris Wright

Pete, a client from the East Coast, and his son are avid God of War video game players and have been from the first game release.
He wanted to commemorate his favorite big screen champion and good times they shared playing with a custom leather bib set for his new 2018 Harley Softail Deluxe.
Ages ago I also played the game so I had a good grasp on who the character was and the symbolism used in the game.  We spent hours on the phone and email looking at screen captures, game boxes, and other references looking for the perfect image.  When it came down to it, what could more intimidating than Kratos himself staring you down from the rear fender?

The bibs are hand tooled Hermann Oak top grain leather with hand braided edges.  Both Kratos and the Dragon Omega rune were airbrushed with Createx Colors Wicked, Illustration and Candy2o colors and topped off with a satin clear to cut glare when Pete is showing this unholy set at bike night!

Coming soon, the God of War Weapons cache swingarm bag!  Check out the completed tooling for this one in the third pic.

Thanks for looking!
