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!

New Softail hybrid tank bib design!

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!
