Our Standard Leather Hood Straps, and our most popular, this set of 4 Shortys is designed for those running just a hood top. These veg tanned 1 1/4" straps are made from extremely strong, heavy weight harness leather. They are infinitely adjustable, and come assembled and ready to install, this is not a kit! Available with strong stainless steel hardware with machine set nickel rivets, or with brass hardware and rivets. The strap size is fully adjustable, with a mount to mount length from about 15" to about 27", but they can be custom sized to fit any application as needed. The mounting loops are approximately 2 1/8" from hole to hole. Since they are infinitely adjustable, there is no need for springs! Available in 5 different finishes, Black, Natural Russet, 50 Year Old Black, Mellow Tan & Dark Brown. There is an additional charge for the Mellow Tan and Dark Brown finishes, as they are hand applied, finished and buffed. As with most of our hood straps, these are made to order, so please allow 3-5 days production time proir to shipping.
The optional Actylic Saddlemakers Clearcoat permanently protects the straps against damage from UV or wet weather. We recommend this option for the NATURAL RUSSET, BLACK & 50 YEAR OLD BLACK straps, as they are essentially "unfinished" leathers. Without this clearcoat finish, they should be regularly treated with "Neatsfoot Oil" or other good quality boot oil for longer service life. Mellow Tan and Dark Brown have the Saddlmakers Acrylic Clearcoat already.
Now available with Stainless Steel "Miller" race car style zig-zag springs as an option! (see images above) These straps come complete, are fully adjustable, and have zig-zag springs in place, ready to install! Just select this as an option when ordering. (Please allow 3-5 days extra production time for this option).
NOTE: 50 YEAR OLD BLACK IS BACK!
It's replacment, "Distressed Black", a much less "beat up" looking leather, is still available, too! It still looks old, just not as old. It is a black finish, with a mottled, slightly worn look. Call for a sample.
NOW, YOU'VE GOT 2 DISTRESSED, VINTAGE LOOKING LEATHERS TO CHOOSE FROM!!
