About Eagle Leather, Our History
Eagle Leather's goal is to provide motorcycle enthusiasts of all ages with the right motorcycle 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, and accessories throughout the Pacific Northwest. Our Lakewood store is more than 20,000 square feet stocked with thousands of products, from leather jackets, chaps, and vests to riding boots, gloves, and helmets in stock for all ages. Visit us 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 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, his massive selections and top quality women’s and men’s motorcycle leathers made Mike's Eagle Leather sales a popular attraction at big events like Daytona and Sturgis. He was soon following riders all over the country. As bikers wanted more, Mike settled Eagle Leather in Tacoma, and opened a series of stores dedicated to his passion of "Gear for the Ride."
Our first store was 1,500 square feet. It was quickly moved into a larger store of 3,000 square feet, which was 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 brands kept them coming back. So, in 2007 we moved into our 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 20,000 square-foot location in Auburn, nearly as big as the foundation store in Lakewood. However, it turned out that 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.
Eagle Leather's service to the motorcycle community is more than just carrying great brands such as Bell, Firstgear, Gerbing, Joe Rocket, and our private label; we also offer a one-year warranty on all products we carry, a 30-day money-back return policy, and onsite alterations and repairs.
Whether you ride a cruiser, touring, or sports bike, you'll find a great selection of men's, women's, and kid’s motorcycle clothing to fit your needs from head to toe, including accessories for your bike in our store or online. Here is some of what you’ll find in our biker gear store: heated clothing for winter riding; cool clothes for summer rides; leather, textile, mesh, and denim jackets; vests; chaps; pants; gloves; boots; helmets; communication systems; riding eyewear and footwear; motorcycle luggage; and much more, because "Eagle Leather's got the Gear for the Ride!"
