Purple Metallic with Pink Lace

Purple Metallic with Pink Lace

I am tired of black, black, black in tops for women riders, leather for women riders and everything else along with there not being any attractive tops for women larger than a teen.

I made these and love them but wonder what other lady riders think?

colored fringe
by: Mo

I love the colored fringe also. I go to the goodwill store and look for leather skirts and find all colors. I, too, make my own grip and lever covers...it is easy. I occasionally change colors to suit my whim. I found some PINK leather pants (oh yes I did!) and am making pink covers . I currently have black and white ones on my bike.I love the fringe sort of long (15 to 18 inches) and find that it flows nicely if I cut it thin. Good job on the ones you made!

Love Those Fringe Grips!

Love, love, love those purple fringe grips, girl. They look awesome on your bike. In fact, I want some. I have an '08 purple Harley softail on which those grips would look saaaweet! Ride on, my sista!

Thanks for your response! I think I will try your colors as they sound great together!

We have gotten quite good at the grips now...

Now purple and lime green maybe, not so much the pink, even though I have lots of MC stuff that is pink, including my helmet, and a hot pink hoodie. Mostly I do the pink cuz hot lime green is hard to find, other than Kawasaki stuff, LOL, but you can tell I am a girl and you can see me!

Honey, it's your bike. If you like the fringe, it's good. I have fringe on my grips - love it! :-)

I was interested in reading your comment about color and everything for bikers being black. I just started a new online boutique called PURSEuasion. I do have a category for motorcycle bags, wallets and purses. Most people are looking for black but I am now wondering if adding more color will be successful? Please let me know what you think! www.PURSEuasion.net

I like it!
by: Sandra

I like the look...

But I would not purchase them; I do not like fringe on anything while riding because I don't like getting smacked with it - and the longer the fringe the more sting it packs. That's MY opinion...there is certainly a market for FRINGE out there - it's been around forever!

I have to agree with rene, I think they need a bit more work.

well yeah-
by: Sande

The grips pictured are the first ones made and yep, the are pretty much to just put on the bike and see if the concept is liked.

I did not plan to invest a bunch of money and fyi, the glitter is not cheap, so I will certainly do more with them if I try to sell them.

Need More Work
by: rene l

Only responding because you asked for honest opinions. I like fitly looking bikes, accessories and gear. However I think they could use a little more work. They look a bit dime store. Really look like the ones for kids bikes. Good luck.

I love them!
by: Melissa

I think they are cute, everyone has their own taste to be different and unique. It's YOUR bike so heck with what everyone else thinks :)

Aug 04, 2010

I think they're kinda cool, but my BF has told me he won't even ride with me if I wear chaps so I know what HE would think. Guess that's why I like to ride alone.
