I bought from them. Bought some blue and black leather streamer for the handle bars but took them off on the "First SPRING Ride" this year when it was reported that they were making my brake light go on and off. They are too long and catch too much wind drag. Anyone know how I can put more tension on the front brake lever???

Oh I found them at the Anoka Fairground when we went the with Lee.

Oh and I asked...... she in no relation to OUR Ghost.

I have an Uncle who was just telling me about this place the other day. He and 3 buddies went up and had chaps made. Only took her an hour for all 4 sets AND they come with a lifetime gaurantee on the hardware. He mentioned the chaps were $160...not bad I thought for custom fit!

Cool

She made my chaps about 10 years ago, handled it totally

through the mail. Excellent workmanship. Best of all

you don't have to stick with just black, and you have a choice

leather thickness. I would recoment the medium weight

leather.

Just bought a pair of chaps from then today at a swap meet. They took my measurements, test fitted a couple pairs on me, and then stitched the waist right there on the spot. Took maybe 30 minutes, because they had other customers in front of me. I wasn't expecting them to have a pair for me there, because I'm 6'5" tall, but they actually had to cut a little length off the legs. Even added a pocket, right there at the show.

The heavy weight leather was really thick. I went with the medium weight, nice and soft.

We have hit Casper's a number of times(being way up north here). Nice to have a place specailizing in leather work . Bought many items there . Also they will sew any patches and do work on items that you may have bought or picked up at other places or events.... noit a lot of places that would do that.

If you buy your chaps there , they will also change or fit them for you over the years as ya gain (or lose) a few pounds............

In their Products section I clicked on "Honey" thinking maybe they keep bees on the side. Guess not!
