Crash Bar Covers, plain
These covers are 4″ inches wide, which fits engine guards with 4″ circumference. The saddlebag guard wraps have a circumference of 3.25″. Please make sure you select the correct crash bar option.
Crash Bar Covers, plain. Made of chap leather. Set of 2, with heavy leather string. When you first lace them on, DO NOT cut the strings completely off, because you may want to re-lace and pull them tight after a week or so. After that you can cut them off.
The customer service reply from Isabel was fast and complete.
I wanted to cover my Engine Guard completely and Isabel sent me two 36″ leather straps made of thick chap style material. Covers were punched at 1 inch intervals and sewn on all 4 edges.
Have patience when installing, I chose to lace the bar off the bike. I took the entire weekend to lace and re-tighten. There are 72 holes and if you rush a job like this, it never goes well.
My advice, don’t bother with the DIY method, Tandy leather will cost twice the price by the time you buy the required supplies and you only have one shot at it.
Captain Itch guarantees his work, leave it to the pros.
I’ve got one side done as of this writing…I’m off to finish the job.
Thanks for your product and customer service.
I bought these over a year ago and they are not only still snug, they still look great! Have them on both my engine guard AND my saddlebag guard! More than worth it to have on when your bike hits the ground…and it WILL hit the ground eventually!

Parfait sur toute la ligne….Very good choice for a perfect fit and a perfect look!
I bought a set for my 2017 Indian Chief Classic.
The fit is great and the look and style are very nice.. much better looking than the Indian OEM leather covers, in my opinion..and makes my

Not being a big fan of chrome, I ordered some leather engine and saddlebag guard bar wraps for my Indian Roadmaster. I like chrome, but prefer it to be an accent rather than the main attraction.
So I ordered 22″ for the saddlebag guards and 18″ for the engine guards. Since my seat is black with white stitching, I went with the same scheme.
If anyone is thinking about these, let me say these are high quality. Thick leather, solid stitching.
Fairly easy to install, but tedious with all the lacing. A word of caution, if you have an Indian Roadmaster with lowers, you’ll either need new bottom clamps or alter your current ones, as the wraps add an inch of thickness to the bars.
Recommending Captain Itch to anyone interested!

The leather quality is outstanding. The plain black covers go well with the denim paint on my bike.
