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!

Custom leather swingarm bags!

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!

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.

I hadn’t realized that I’ve been away from the blog so long, as we’ve been working on the new website, Instagram and Facebook pages!
I’ve got a ton of updates to do along with all the new models of bikes, so stay tuned over the next few days!

To get the blog update rolling, why not feature some of the new bibs we’ve been building for the 2018 Harley-Davidson line up.
There were quite a few changes in 018, some minor and some major changes with only a few like the Touring models; Road King, Streetglide, RoadGlide, etc. staying the same bib wise.

Check out the pics below highlighting the new Softail Slim, Softail Deluxe & Heritage, Fatboy and  and the Three Mutts Customs accessories to go with them!
In a coming post we’ll talk about some of the other new models including the Touring models, Softail Low Rider and others!

Softail Slim – This model got a whole new tank bib and a fender bib hole change.  The Harley tank bib features a bolt cut-out in the rear wings that I can’t figure out, so I modified the design to have a full wing and allowing braided edges to come all the way back to the seat.

Softail Deluxe/Heritage – Like the Softail Slim, these two iconic models picked up a new tank bib shape and fender bib hole placement change.

Fatboy – Big changes here, the 2018 Fatboy picked up a new metal dash piece in place of traditional tank bib and a fender bib hole placement change.
Fender bibs are designed and I’ve worked out a jig and am now starting to make leather replacements for the tank panel

Thanks for looking!

“God of War – Kratos” 2018 Softail Deluxe bib set!

Posted in airbrushing, Fender bibs, Harley Davidson, Harley Softail, leather, Motorcycles, Tank bib, Three Mutts Customs, Tooled Leather, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on December 16, 2018 by Chris Wright

Pete, a client from the East Coast, and his son are avid God of War video game players and have been from the first game release.
He wanted to commemorate his favorite big screen champion and good times they shared playing with a custom leather bib set for his new 2018 Harley Softail Deluxe.
Ages ago I also played the game so I had a good grasp on who the character was and the symbolism used in the game.  We spent hours on the phone and email looking at screen captures, game boxes, and other references looking for the perfect image.  When it came down to it, what could more intimidating than Kratos himself staring you down from the rear fender?

The bibs are hand tooled Hermann Oak top grain leather with hand braided edges.  Both Kratos and the Dragon Omega rune were airbrushed with Createx Colors Wicked, Illustration and Candy2o colors and topped off with a satin clear to cut glare when Pete is showing this unholy set at bike night!

Coming soon, the God of War Weapons cache swingarm bag!  Check out the completed tooling for this one in the third pic.

Thanks for looking!
