This was a request from a lady down in Georgia with a killer Sportster 883 Lo (with the 1200 tank).
She was looking for a winged skull design but wanted to really accent the lines of the bike with a head turning style.

Both bibs were done in our original Chaos Pebbles Split Lane design with the winged skull laid out to have the wings slightly overlap the center bar to give it more visual depth.
A red accent stitch line and hand braided edges finish the custom bibs off with a splash of color.  Something new for us, the client measured out her bike and we make the Sportster fender bib fit from tail light bracket to seat bolt for full coverage, worked out nicely and is super secure!  below are pics of the Winged Skull Sportster custom tank & fender bib set.  I also added a couple of other Sportster custom bibs for more inspiration!

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 one for immediate sale in the Etsy shop folks, made one of these for a 2013 Harley Sportster 48 not too long ago and liked the look enough that I made up another one.  It was made to fit the single seat bolt Harley Sportster and Softtail models including the Blackline and Slim. Will not fit Deluxe, Duece models with two bolt seat bracket.

Custom two tone rear fender bib in Saddle Tan and Antique Brown with Coyote Tan stitching. Smooth burnished edges & medium brown felt underside complete the color theme.

The bib is approximately 3 1/2″ wide x 14 1/2″ long. Bolt holes are 11 1/4″ apart on center.  Seat side hole is slightly oblong to allow for small adjustments.

The second photo shows similarly constructed bib mounted on a 2011 Harley Blackline.

LV_96-883_lt_sideWith winter ending and the 2013 riding season starting with a roar, this edition features a sweet Sportster just perfect for cruisin’ the warm summer months.  While I didn’t do all of the leather for Tony’s 1996 883 (I did the pin-up rear fender bib), it all comes together along with some little extras he had custom made.

Starting off with a full big bore 1200 kit installed, Tony also had the wheels, primary, forks,and rocker box covers custom powdercoated.  Combine that with a number of chrome accents and the custom paint and it’s looking pretty mean. Top it off with custom one of a kind leatherwork that he designed himself and Tony’s Sportster is a definite looker.  Leaving no cap unturned, he even designed a set of custom made caps for the fork nut covers that are worth a look at.  Speaking of looking…read on for the pics, enjoy!

Harley rear fender bib pin-up

labor of lust: pin-up rear fender bibsHad a fun project this last week that I thought would be cool to share some of the work in progress pics. Tony hit me up last month looking for a rear fender bib for his 1996 Harley Davidson Sportster featuring a Jessica Rabbit style pin-up wearing quite a bit less than we saw her in the movie.  He sent a few pics along with a shot of his existing handlebar bag so I could match the color and background style of the bag.  The following is a sequence from pattern to finished piece and a few steps in between.  I’m actually thinking that next month when the shop is closed for Babycation I may go back and do another one and take a few more pictures of the process including the dying/airbrushing stages to “flesh” those out a bit more for you.

Enjoy!
