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.

New custom leather toolbag design!

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!

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!

Posted in Harley Davidson, Harley Softail, Laser Engraving, Leatherwork, Motorcycles, Softail Slim, swingarm bags, Three Mutts Customs with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 21, 2018 by Chris Wright

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!

Aftermarket seat matching motorcycle accessories!

Posted in Fender bibs, Harley Davidson, leather, Motorcycles, Tank bib, tank panel, Three Mutts Customs with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 18, 2018 by Chris Wright

One of the items that have become popular this past year is tank bibs, fender bibs and bags that match the aftermarket seats for Harleys.
Turns out some of the biggest seat manufacturers; Corbin, Saddlemen, & LePera don’t make matching accessories.  Mustang makes them, but only for their black seats.
So after talking with each of them, I started designing and building matched sets  for those folks looking to compliment their custom Harley cushion.

Each company features their own leather and vinyl selections so these are still a custom build based on bike model and seat bought, but all 4 companies work with me to buy smaller batches for custom builds to make our client’s visions come true!

Here are photos of match tank bibs, fender bibs, swingarm bags, tool bags, leg guards and other bits we’ve done for each seat brand.

Looking for a Corbin, Saddlemen, Mustang or LePera matching bib?  Drop us a line at 855-362-5847  or chris@threemuttscustoms.com
