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.

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!

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

So I have decided to put my money where my mouth is. Starting today I will be carrying Pecard Motorcycle Leather Dressing and Kiwi Horsehair brushes for purchase. I talk about them here and Facebook/Instagram but then send folks elsewhere to buy it…not anymore. I’m also going to offer them at the same price as Pecard, no unnecessary gouging here.

Prices will be $4.00 for a 2.5 oz jar of Pecard Motorycle Leather Dressing and $6 for a Kiwi Horsehair Brush.  Shipping for one or both is $5.25 via Priority Mail (USA/APO addresses).
Order them with your custom leather job and they’ll be included in the same box to save on shipping.

The new website should be online later this month with the new products. In the meantime drop me an email at chris@threemuttscustoms.com to order or request it with a custom leather job.

Honda VTX and Aero 7 50 whaletail tank bibs

Posted in Honda VTX1300, leather, Motorcycles, VTX1800, Whaletail Tank Bib with tags , , , , , on July 12, 2015 by Chris Wright

As promised in a previous post, I’ve come back with more info on whaletail tank bibs. If you’ve emailed me anytime since December 2013 or checked the forums, you already know that I stopped maknig them that winter.  The good news is, late last year a fellow VTX rider came and asked if I would instruct him on making his own. Jeff made his first whaletail using my pattern and tips and was hooked.  After six months of working on whaletail tank bibs for the VTX1300, he is now expanding and making them for sale for the whole VTX 1300/1800 line and the ’04-’09 Honda Aero 750.  His website: http://abgmsales.wix.com/whale-tail-bib shows the current models and he has the rest being shipped to him in the next week or so.  Contact info is on his website or you can email him at: abgmsales@hotmail.com Cheers, Chris

New artwork option – Laser Engraving!

Posted in C90T Boss, Custom Embroidery, Fender bibs, keychain, knife sheath, Laser Engraving, leather, Motorcycles, New Items, Road King, Slim, Softail, Sportster, StreetGlide, Suzuki, Tank bib, Tooled Leather, wallet chain with tags , , , , , , , , , on June 6, 2014 by Chris Wright

I’ve been working on a few different options for custom fender bib and tank bib artwork to compliment hand tooled designs for the last year. After researching what is possible, what looks best and performs under the sometimes brutal conditions motorcycle leather can go through I added custom embroidery to the line up late last year.  Embroidery gave folks another option for affordable, full color designs but there was still a gap in the line up.  I wanted another line, one that could provide in stock or fast ship inventory at a great price and still be somewhat customizable.  I was also trying to figure out a way to provide bibs with the possibility of tiny detail, to the level that hand tooling and embroidery couldn’t achieve with prefect clarity.

After long consideration, I’m adding LASER ENGRAVING to the available options for adding designs to your custom leather fender bibs and tank bibs!

Laser engraving is a great addition to our offerings, the detail possible is insanely small and it has a similar appearance to hand tooled artwork for flat two dimensional and line art designs.  It will also allow us to now personalize items like the wallet chain and key chain fobs like never berfore.

Here are a few examples of pieces a few clients have been brave enough to let me experiment with to dial in the process, enjoy!
