Leather Seats – Machine Sewn: All custom motorcycle seats start out with a thorough assessment of the seat pan. It is strengthened and modified if necessary before any work begins. All edges are wrapped in leather to reduce abrasion. The type of foam used depends on the seat. I use high-density polyurethane foam for thicker seats. This foam is anti-microbial and anti-bacterial. No worrying about crap growing in your seat from sweat, rain, or who knows what else. For thinner custom seats I use a variety of closed-cell foams depending on the result I need to achieve. I only use the highest quality US leather and materials for all my work. Seat tops are 7-8 oz. in thickness. Sides are 4-5 oz. leather on the tooled seats. Sewn upholstery type leather is 3.5-5 oz. in thickness. All covers are attached with glue and wide flange rivets. Depending on the final application I cover all seat bottoms with felt, suede, or top-grain cowhide. On thin sprung solo seats the bottom is covered in the same 7-8 oz cowhide as the top. Only the mounting points are exposed unless otherwise requested. Every tooled seat is hand laced with calfskin lace, or hand sewn. All upholstered seats are sewn with heavy UV-protected polyester thread. Pricing for hand-tooled seats of average (single person) size starts at $800, but can be more or less depending on the size and complexity of the design and seat. Upholstered seats start at $350.
