Chilhowee Mud Flaps for Indian
Click On Your Model
1. We start by selecting
our hides by hand. That means we pay close attention to each hide
and handpick the best leather for the job - and only the finest
cuts are used.
2. Then Chilhowee artisans
cut out the mud flap template for your specific brand and model
from durable 8 oz full grain, specially tanned Buffalo hide.
3. If you order studs, we
mark the mud flap for them (1 ¼-inch centers) and then hand-mount
the finest quality studs available, guaranteed not to rust.
You decide if you want studs!
4. Now a premium quality concho, if that's
on your option list, is positioned on the leather and installed.
You pick out which concho or none at all!
5. Next, we select another super thick
cut of the same hide and sew it to the underside of the mud flap
using rot-proof stitching to make your mud flap stiff and extra
durable. If you select edge piping, it is sewn between the two layers
of leather at this stage.
6. If you opt for the hand-laced edges
(our favorite), we mark the mud flap for the locations of holes
(1-inch centers), and punch each hole by hand. Using 1/8-inch full
grain leather lacing, the outside edges of the mud flap are laced
by hand to complete the look. You decide what kind of edging!
7. Finally, your mud flap
is treated with Buffalo Butter Advanced Leather Conditioner and
303 Anti-fade Protectant to give your motorcycle leather product
a great start at a long life!
