Harley-Davidson heat shield with barb wire tooling

(4 customer reviews)

Available for HD Touring Models and Softails, 500s and 750s. No Dynas. For Sportsters, please send us a picture of your bike with the seat off, so we can see how and where it attaches to the frame. After we get this information, you’ll get an email from us on how to proceed.




This Harley-Davidson heat shield is made of beautiful buffed bridle leather, and has a ply of split leather (Suede) on the bottom, so nothing can scratch your motorcycle. Both layers are glued together with industrial cement and stitched around the edges. It has a tooled barbwire border along the edge.

If you have plastic heat shields on your bike, please remove them before you install ours. They prevent our leather to lay flat against the frame and you won’t get all the benefits of it. In order to install the crotch cooler you remove your seat, put the seat tang through the crotch cooler and tighten your seat back down. Pretty simple.

    This the second item I have owned from the Captain. The cooler is made from very heavy material with a soft underside. Stiching and embossing are the best I’ve seen on leather articles.
    In Minneapolis we have extensive road construction and I have been sitting at a dead stop for 10 to 15 minutes at a time.
    I was previously cooking my nether regions. This item is a welcome addition and looks great. Customer service is excellent.
    The leather starts out a bit stiff but will quickly relax and take is place behind the air filter and over the oil tank. I just returned from a summer 2015 trip of 6 hours straight. No issues with flapping or overheating. Please support this American business.

    Got the crotch cooler with barb wire tooling. This really completed my 1997 Roadking classy look. Excellent workmanship, no more sweaty legs, great product. Already have my son hooked and he is going to order one for his Electraglide

    2013 Harley Davidson Softail Slim with a Chrome Oil cap + massive heat from the 103 engine = blisters on my thigh. What to do? Search the web to find Captain Itch and Isabel. One order, One phone call and 3 days later I have a custom Leather Heat Shield with Barbed Wire in my hands. Installed quickly – with ease and off I go. Before, I couldn’t ride more than 25 miles without burn on the thigh – this trip I rode 50+ with comfort. And did I mention the look added to Slim. WOW! I am not certain there are enough adjectives to describe the detail, craftsmanship, look it gives Slim and NO MORE blisters. Customer service was phenomenal. The best spent $119.00 ever! Thank you Captain Itch and Isabel for the rescuing me and making my ride (short or long) pleasurable and the Sleek design that adds custom comfort to Slim. Shop here and never look back.

    Been tiding mine for about four years now, best thing I ever did. Lots of miles since then ( maybe 15,000), never a problem, does a great job, looks like new. Cant believe it isn’t 5 star for everyone!
