Not long ago, I was out on my motorcycle when an errant driver hit me from behind, causing my bike to flip end over end, destroying the whole front of my beloved Triumph and doing some serious damage to me as well. When I got out of the hospital and could move around again, I went to the shop where the wreck was located. It was pretty bad. Nothing from the front tire to the gas tank wasn’t completely destroyed…except for my bike bag.
I couldn’t believe it. It was still in perfect shape. Unfortunately, I can’t say the same for my shoulder. This bike bag was the thing that inspired me to start Spark Leatherworks, and its toughness is a testament to the reason why.
The bag itself is made out of heavy-duty top-grain leather that’s as strong as it comes. Each bag is hand-colored and hand-stitched to order in one of the custom Spark configurations, or to whatever unique specs the rider wants. The simplicity of the design insures that it will compliment any motorcycle or bicycle set-up, and can me mounted to the handlebars, the seat, the pannier or anywhere you can think of, with a simple dual loop arrangement on the back that buckles securely in the front. Every bag has solid brass rings on the side to accommodate additional tie-downs, or can be matched with an optional strap to double as a purse/messenger bag for when you’re on the go.
In addition, the bag is significantly larger than similar bike bags on the market to fit full size tools, large rain gear, a pair of shoes or whatever else you need the extra room for.
Available in Whiskey, Bourbon, Rye, Black or Naked.
