Materials: Choose the seat covering material, such as leather, vinyl (PU leather), or other specific materials (suede, fabric, etc.). Consider your usage, for example, suede or nubuck is not recommended for a bike that is frequently exposed to rain and UV rays. PU leather (faux leather) is now very durable with finishes very close to full-grain leather. It is also more affordable. Mixing materials is entirely possible, such as a combination of leather and "alcantara".
Color: Customize the color of the seat covering to match your bike's style. We offer a wide range of colors. Feel free to send us photos of your bike so we can help you choose.
Design and Stitching: Choose specific stitching patterns, perforated patterns, inserts, or other design elements to add a personal touch. We offer classic stitches parallel or diamond-shaped.
Simple Parallel Stitching:
Double Parallel Stitching:
Embroidery or Logos: Add embroidery, logos, or personalized names for a unique touch. We can display your name, nickname, or your crew's name!
Comfort: Customize the shape and density of the foam for optimal comfort. Think about your own comfort or that of your passenger.
Height: Adjust the height of the seat to fit your size or your riding preferences.
Additional Features: Integration of specific features, such as storage pockets, luggage attachments, a removable passenger seat, etc.
Overall Style: Harmonize the seat with other bike accessories, such as the tank, handles, etc.
As you've understood, the goal is not only to make your bike more comfortable but also to reflect your personality and style through the wide choice of materials and stitches.
How to Take Measurements?
To have a custom motorcycle seat made, it's important to take precise measurements to ensure an optimal fit. Here are the general steps you can follow:
Length and Width: Measure the length and width of your existing seat or the seating area on your bike.
Height: Measure the height from the base to the top of your seat.
Rider's Position: Consider your riding position—whether you prefer to sit back or lean forward.
Passenger Seat: If you're customizing a passenger seat, take measurements for it as well.
Additional Features: If you want specific features, note them down for customization.
Pattern: One of the best ways to avoid mistakes is to create a pattern. To do this, use a piece of cardboard that you will cut until you obtain the perfect dimension. This cut corresponds to the base of the seat (bottom of the seat). You can then easily measure your template. Be careful to take into account the material overlap, which will slightly increase your dimensions.
