I just made this top quality buffalo leather motorcycle bag, with tooling leather accents straps and end gussets. It's another one I wish I could keep for myself! Right now, though, my '82 Ironhead has the heads at the repair shop getting the valves attended to, so it isn't getting any presents until I put it back together.
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 buffalo hide with a really awesome, deep grain. The leather is actually fairly soft, but the end gussets are stiff and help the bag hold its shape, even when empty. stiff, 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 hand stitched the sides using heavy triple strand nylon thread. Everything else is riveted together. The straps are good, heavy tooling/strap leather, stamped with a skull design.
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, 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.
