I just made this top quality leather motorcycle bag, and I wish I could keep it for myself! Right now, my '82 Ironhead is getting some top end work done, so it isn't getting any presents until that is finished.
The bag measures 9" wide and will roll down to 4" or as tall as 7". It will hold your wallet, phone, some tools, a can of Foster's, a pint of..., well, you get the idea. It is a pretty roomy bag. I made the bag from American-sourced 6-ounce tooling leather, so it is plenty tough. The leather is stiff, but can be oiled and worked to soften it up a bit. With the tops of the end gussets being curved, it seals up pretty well, but it isn't waterproof. Being a high-quality leather, it will put up with getting wet and drying out; no problem.
I finished the bag with three coats of black dye and three coats of Leather Balm with Atom Wax. I put a line of decorative stamping along the flap that looks like lacing. It looks very cool, if I do say so, myself.
I hand stitched the sides using heavy triple strand nylon thread. Everything else is riveted together.
The buckles are solid brass with nickle plating.
The straps on the back are designed to go around the forks above the front fender, above the fork brace, on the handlebars, as long as your gauges (if any) are behind the handlebars; or on a sissy bar. You can probably find other ways to attach it.
If you would like one of these in a different color, made from a different leather, or that attaches differently, or is personalized in some way, just drop me a line. I'm always happy to make something special.
