Been a few requests for these leather leg guards (heat shields) for the Harley Softail Heritage, Deluxe, Slim and Fatboy lately.
Pretty standard shape, I refined the curves a bit in version 2. The size and shape shape of these are great as they allow for a large handtooled design to personalize your Harley.

Most recently, a Facebook Softail group post by client Gail had made the floral design shields very popular.  I like to change each design slightly, different flowers, altering the petal and vines placement, etc. to make each one a bit unique.  And as always, the client has their input to make it theirs  For those aren’t into flowers, I can also make these Harley leg guards to match aftermarket seats like Mustang seats diamond stitch, LePera seats, Corbin seats and Saddlemen seat in matching materials.  A few examples of the matched pieces are below as well.

More about the new tank bib shape for the Softail Slim

I recently posted pics about the new tank bib shape I designed for the Harley Softail Slim, how about a bit more information?
The wide style tank bib was designed mainly to make more room for artwork.  The factory tank bib on the Softail Slim is dreadfully narrow so getting good detail or color into a design on it was quite a pain.  What I did was to simply mock up the factory shape on the computer and bump the sides out with a nice curve that flows from the dash but maintains all the factory mounting points.

The new bibs can have any of the options; laser engraving, hand tooled designs, embroidery, as well as diamond stitching to match up with aftermarket seats like LePera and Mustang.
I have also recently partnered with LePera seats and can now order all of their matching materials for bibs, bags, etc. to compliment your LePera custom seat!

So now that I’ve explained the new bib style, here are some pictures to show what is possible for the Softail Slim!

p.s. – this style will also work with the Heritage, Crossbones and Springer that use the teardrop dash console
