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!

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!

Something a bit different…knife sheath!

Posted in black, bowie, brown, custom work, knife, knife sheath, leather, MOAB, New Items, Three Mutts Customs with tags , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2013 by Chris Wright

A friend at work brought in this behemoth of a blade, a Busse prototype Bowie, and asked about a sheath for it.  Formidable in size with a 5/16″ thick, 10″ long dual curve blade it made for a fun diversion from my standard offerings.  I decided on a hybrid of a standard folded sheath with a 3/4 welted and stitched design to best fit the thickness of the blade while showing off the curves at the same time.  Made from 6oz drum dyed (dyed all the way through) Black cowhide with black stitching and a nickel Sam Browne button for the cross over closure.  The belt loop extends all the way up so the handle rests just below the belt line to allow for easier access and full withdrawal without tilting the sheath.

Had such a good time making this one, custom knife sheathes are being added to the product line for anyone interested.  Black, brown, custom colors, etc. will all be available upon request.

I finally finished getting all the parts, the design and samples made for the new belt straps.  Two different versions with a number of options are available in the Etsy shop for immediate purchase.  These belt loops are made from a single piece of thick 6 oz Herman Oak leather and drum dyed all the way through in either black or brown.  You can choose from a keychain ring or a large claw clasp to keep your gear close at hand.  There are currently 12 decorative snap heads to choose from including military, Harley Davidson half skull and others.

Here is a new one for immediate sale in the Etsy shop folks, made one of these for a 2013 Harley Sportster 48 not too long ago and liked the look enough that I made up another one.  It was made to fit the single seat bolt Harley Sportster and Softtail models including the Blackline and Slim. Will not fit Deluxe, Duece models with two bolt seat bracket.

Custom two tone rear fender bib in Saddle Tan and Antique Brown with Coyote Tan stitching. Smooth burnished edges & medium brown felt underside complete the color theme.

The bib is approximately 3 1/2″ wide x 14 1/2″ long. Bolt holes are 11 1/4″ apart on center.  Seat side hole is slightly oblong to allow for small adjustments.

The second photo shows similarly constructed bib mounted on a 2011 Harley Blackline.

LV_96-883_lt_sideWith winter ending and the 2013 riding season starting with a roar, this edition features a sweet Sportster just perfect for cruisin’ the warm summer months.  While I didn’t do all of the leather for Tony’s 1996 883 (I did the pin-up rear fender bib), it all comes together along with some little extras he had custom made.

Starting off with a full big bore 1200 kit installed, Tony also had the wheels, primary, forks,and rocker box covers custom powdercoated.  Combine that with a number of chrome accents and the custom paint and it’s looking pretty mean. Top it off with custom one of a kind leatherwork that he designed himself and Tony’s Sportster is a definite looker.  Leaving no cap unturned, he even designed a set of custom made caps for the fork nut covers that are worth a look at.  Speaking of looking…read on for the pics, enjoy!

Harley rear fender bib pin-up

labor of lust: pin-up rear fender bibsHad a fun project this last week that I thought would be cool to share some of the work in progress pics. Tony hit me up last month looking for a rear fender bib for his 1996 Harley Davidson Sportster featuring a Jessica Rabbit style pin-up wearing quite a bit less than we saw her in the movie.  He sent a few pics along with a shot of his existing handlebar bag so I could match the color and background style of the bag.  The following is a sequence from pattern to finished piece and a few steps in between.  I’m actually thinking that next month when the shop is closed for Babycation I may go back and do another one and take a few more pictures of the process including the dying/airbrushing stages to “flesh” those out a bit more for you.

Enjoy!
