About Eagle Leather, Our History
Eagle Leather's goal is to provide motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages with the right gear to ensure they ride protected in comfort and style. It's because of this that Eagle Leather is the Bikers' premier destination for Motorcycle Gear, Parts & Accessories in the Pacific Northwest, and is a true shopping experience. Our Lakewood store is more than 20,000 square feet stocked with literally thousands of products, from Leather Jackets, Chaps, and Vests to Riding Boots, Gloves, and Helmets and much more in stock for all ages it's easy to see why Eagle Leather is the Northwest rider's very own slice of heaven.
When company President, Mike Toursal saw – and rode -- his first motorcycle, a CMG, it turned into an event that kick started a lifelong love of steel and chrome. This is a true Biker's story. Traveling around the U.S., selling motorcycle gear out of a van, the massive selection and top quality leather gear made Mike's Eagle Leather a popular attraction at big events like Daytona and Sturgis. Soon he was following riders all over the country. As Bikers wanted more, Mike settled Eagle Leather in Tacoma, opening a series of stores dedicated to his passion of "Gear For The Ride."
First store...1,500 square feet. It was quickly moved into a larger store of 3,000 square feet...still not enough. An upgrade to 9,000 square feet was still not enough as Bikers made Eagle Leather a destination. The growing selection and the new 'Eagle Leather' brand leathers kept them coming back. And in 2007 Eagle Leather moved to their current Location, a 20,000 square foot building on the corner of highway 512 and South Tacoma Way in Lakewood. In 2012, Mike took the next big entrepreneurial step and opened a second location, 20,000 square feet in Auburn, nearly as big as the foundation store in Lakewood, and equally as big in personal attention. Sadly the Auburn store was too close to Eagle Leather's foundation store in Lakewood and it was closed to seek better opportunities in another location.
