Baggers Tested | Hand Made Custom Leather Bra - Baggers Magazine
01. Here is the stock Electra Glide Batwing fairing.
02. To install all we did was lay it out in the sun for a bit to warm up and soften the leather. As this was happening we removed the outer fairing. Then we placed a bit of epoxy (not supplied) on the areas marked on the inside of the bra. Then we tucked the leather tabs into the fairing as we reinstalled the fairing.
03. We added the chrome windshield trim to hold the top of the bra in place. The bra perfectly fit the stock fairing.
04. In well under an hour the fairing had a new look.
Tom Hovie has a passion for motorcycles and leather. Tom wanted leather accessories for his motorcycle and couldn't find what he was looking for. Tom's leather hobby and current business began with a leather bra he made for his own bike. After a lot of attention the business was born and now has a full line of leather accessories for your ride. From leather covers for lower fairings and tank dashes to hand stitched leather seat covers, and saddlebag lid covers. Tom can do fairing bras for many makes and models in a variety of colors. Everything Tom does is custom, with hand-tooled designs, made to the customer's specifications.
A fairing bra can change the look of a bike as well as protecting the fairing. A bra can hide a scratched or beat-up fairing as well. The one pictured here was made of 6-ounce grade leather.
