One of my specialties is airbrushed and hand painted custom tank bibs and fender bibs.
Eagles, Pin-Ups, and Sugar Skulls are just a few of my recent full color subjects. What some folks don’t realize is these are hand tooled first and then painted. This enhances the highlights, shadows and depth of the final piece. Granted, the process isn’t cheap but the end result is unlike most custom bibs, for Harleys or any other bike you’ll find out there.

here are a couple of pics of my most recent custom painted tank and fender bibs for Harley motorcycles.  Enjoy!

New custom Harley Road King tank bib design

After learning last month that the 2013 Harley Road King has an option for a one piece dash and making a tank bib that didn’t work for that application I worked it out with the client to create a new design and revisit his artwork with a splash of color.

After a couple of sessions of working on it, here is the result. The design fits around the ignition switch and runs down the dash to bolt to the lower tank bolt under the seat. The custom eagle and warrior feathers artwork was hand tooled and painted and the edges were hand braided with turquoise kangaroo leather lacing imported from Australia.

I have a bunch of new custom leather project & bike pics to share this week but some of them need their own post or a themed post so I’ll just start with a couple of recent custom rear fender bibs I made for two Harleys and a Honda…enjoy!

This is the rear fender bib that was shown two weeks ago in the progress pics but now there are bike pics to go along with it.  Marshall’s 2007 Harley Davidson Road King Classic was a pretty slick looking ride already and now there’s a splash of Three Mutts color to take it up a notch!

Congratulations also go out for this RKC taking the Viewer’s Choice and Participant’s Awards in the recent Alton, Missouri Chamber of Commerce Custom Car & Bike Show!

I haven’t gotten any new pictures lately from clients so I don’t have a fun finished pic to post.  In the meantime, here’s last night’s tooling session – a bald eagle soaring over the mountains.  The image will be in full color and is the tooling being done on a custom leather rear fender bib for a 2007 Harley Davidson Road King Classic.  Enjoy!
