Craftsmanship

Customized Chaps

I cater to both men and women who want a different look in their riding gear. If you have an idea of what you would like to see on your chaps, let me know. I design the image that you want to have on your customized commercial chaps.  Alterations can be made to commercially made chaps.

Custom Chap Construction

Unless otherwise specified, motorcycle chaps are made out of 3- 3.5 oz leather, western riding chaps out of 2.5-3 oz leather, chinks out of  4-5 oz leather and bull riding chaps out of 3-3.5oz leather.  I offer dozens of colors and a variety of textures and tanning processes.  I use high quality nickel, brass or stainless steel zippers.  Unless specified all chaps are unlined which many say is the best comfort all around.

Hardware

Hardware used on all projects are guaranteed not to rust.  Alternatively, I encourage you to shop online or in stores for buckles and conchos to embellish your project.

Velcro, Nylon Webbing and Plastic

I limit the use of the Velcro, nylon webbing and plastic unless it improves the functionality of the products or unless it requested by you. Unless requested you will never find plastic edging or trim on my chaps or tank bibs.

Tank bibs

Each bib is handcrafted and shaped to your specifications. I then back it with soft 2 oz suede to protect the tank from scratching. The final product is a thick yet sturdy bib which will  mold nicely to your tank giving it a look of fine quality.

Complete Tank Covers

These can be tricky, but I honestly love creating them because in the case where a tank has been potentially ruined due to a dent or deep scratch, the owner now is given the option of turning it into a show piece.  Preferably I would like the tank mailed to me but I can worked with you on the final fit.  However, a template for this type of products must be created by you unless you are willing to ship me the tank.

Dyeing process

I may not be quick to give away my trade secrets and techniques but I will tell you this: I strive for richness and variety in color beyond any on the motorcycle market today. I experiment until I have the color and look that I was after.

Leather Finish

I use high quality leather finishes on my products. My tank bibs stand up to even gasoline spills! You cannot completely waterproof leather so natural color leather may water spot and it will become “suntanned” with time.  Oiled finishes are available upon request otherwise the leather will be treated with water resistant products.
