Black Alligator Chopper Harley Solo Seat Large

  •  This is a new BLACK HORN BACK ALLIGATOR 3D EMBOSSED LEATHER SEAT. This is a very nice American made embossed leather. It is thick, supple and very durable. Some of the embossed alligator leathers out there are very thin and poorly made.   This seat is black but I can make this seat in many other colors, and brown, tan antique red or solid red. 
  • The bottom of my seats are covered with, my vegetable tanned tooling leather. My vegetable tanned tooling leather is the finest 100% US made, tooling leather available on the market today.  It gives the best tooling results, and last the longest. This is the same type of leather that is used in making fine American horse saddles.
  • The pan is made of 1/8" inch thick steel. This makes it a very rigid and strong seat pan, that will be able to take a lot of abuse. and will last a very long time. They are incredibly sturdy!  I wouldn't think of using aluminum pans like some other manufactures use, because all the weight of the rider is resting on the welded bolts, and when aluminum is put under stress it tends to crack.
  • The pan measures 11" wide by 16" long.  The studs in the rear are spaced 7" apart.  Custom sizes are available.  I can offer custom sizing because I am the manufacture not an importer of these seats. 
  • I use closed cell neoprene foam on my seats. Closed cell means that the foam is made up of many micro pockets of air. This provides better cushioning than open cell foam because open cell foam lets the rider bottom out. This allows me to be able to give the seat a more slim profile.
  • A picture is worth a thousand words, so I am going to show you some pictures of my seat making process. You can see from my pictures that the leather I use is so thick that I have to use a horse saddle makers sewing machine. They are not imported, and mass produced. They are fine examples of American craftsmanship.
  • After the seat is finished  I apply a coat of Aussie leather conditioner. This is a bees wax based leather conditioner, that is used by many horse saddle makers, that also helps repel water.
  • The seat mounting hardware is not included in the buy it now price.  You can find the hinge, nose mount clamp, and spring kit in my ebay store for purchase.  
  • You can call me at 314-972-4305 to ask questions, or to make a payment over the phone. I accept most major credit cards.
  • As always, thanks for shopping at Mother Road Customs. Where quality and craftsmanship come first.
