Aftermarket seat matching motorcycle accessories!

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.

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!

I was pretty pleased with these recent images I tooled into a couple of custom leather bibs and felt they warranted their own post.  Not much else, just showing off a bit.  Enjoy!

New! Black Antique dye process

Posted in antique, black, custom work, Fender bibs, Motorcycles, New Items, Tank bib, tank panel, Tooled Leather with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 10, 2014 by Chris Wright

I’ve been working out the details on a new coloring process called “Black Antique” to help highlight darker bibs with extensive tooling.  The product isn’t new but the way I use it is and it took a bit o playing around to figure out how to do it right.  Why? Because solid black bibs look cool but when crazy detailed toolings are dyed all black, they loose a bit of that detail due to the loss of defining lines and shadows.  The best way to describe Black Antique is it gives the tooling a burnt look, maintaining the dark colors while letting the detail show through.  In direct sunlight, the artwork pops a little more,  showing off areas where the color has been pulled back to look, well…antique, aged.

Here are a few examples of the new Black Antique coloring results on some recent Harley rear fender bibs and a Harley tank bib.  For those interested, the previous post shows these pieces in their raw uncolored state.

Enjoy!
