Check it out!
She finally showed up! I taught both of my boys how to kick an old Harley.they both got it on the first kick. Here's a video of my 21 year old kickin' it. I'm so proud. They're both naturals. Now I gotta figure out how to get them both into a bike.
I've been slowly collecting leatherworking tools, because is like to start working with it and maybe even support my family with it. This was my first attempt at making a complex piece. I know that with owning an older bike, I was going to need to carry some tools with me. So this gave me the opportunity to make something useful. I didn't want a "tool bag". I had stumbled across some various tool rolls that people have made, and kinda took the idea and made this. Mounted on the bike it looks like a tool bag. Undo the buckles and it rolls out into a tool roll while staying attached to the bike. I included some spare spark plug holders and a small pouch. It took me about 15-20 hours to make, but I figure I could cut that time in half if I made another one or two. Not sure what I would charge for this basic version. I would like to start practicing tooling leather and might offer that as a custom option. The pics aren't great, but you get the idea.
