1999 Suzuki Intruder LC 1500 Leather (Rawhide)

Photo of a 1999 Suzuki Intruder LC 1500 Leather (Rawhide)


This all started because I was getting the bugs off after Sturgis & I cut my hand on the mirror where some chrome had peeled up. It was near the end of the riding season here in Nebraska, so I just put a piece of leather around the edges of the mirrors.
After that I spent all winter in the basement learning to hand tool, stitch & braid leather. How much you ask?? 2300+ hours, $2000 in supplies, countles cases of beer which helped with the design & plenty of weekend all nighters. Now she wants one in black. Yeah I'm going to get right on that honey.


Bike is covered in Hair- On Bullhide & hand tooled leather with every thing hand stiched. To date I have over 2300 hours of work in it.
