Harley Snake Seat Can fit Sportster Bobber BSA Frame


This is a new WHITE AND BLACK SNACK SKIN EMBOSSED COW HIDE LEATHER SEAT. This is a very nice American made embossed leather. It is thick, supple and very durable. Some of the embossed leathers out there are very thin and poorly made. I have been using the same leather supplier for several year now and they are very concerned about producing a high quality leather. You can see the quality in the pictures. Most customers say that the seat quality is even better than the pictures. 
  • 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 10 1/2" wide by 13" 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. These seats 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 with this auction. The seat mounting kit that you see in the pictures can be purchased in my ebay store!  With the kit shown in the pictures you will get  a set of hairpin springs, a seat hinge, and a bolt on nose mount bracket. This bracket allows you to mount your seat to most frames!!!!!!  If you would like to purchase the seat mounting kit just go into my store a click on the hardware category to chose your hardware.
  • Old world American craftsmanship is rare but still out there, if one takes the time to look around. 
  • 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.
