An Excellent Example Of Our Craft
Recently our seat makers got the opportunity to build a custom seat for Jim Grant, owner and publisher of FlattrackWorld.com. Jim was kind enough to send us this photo of the seat, now installed on this great looking track machine.
Working from our tried-and-true Flat Track racing saddle design, our crafts people gave it a tough, durable and stylish "carbon-fiber" vinyl cover, with custom embroidery.
Custom seat design and tailoring has been a cornerstone of Saddlemen's work since our founding. To see more examples and information, check out our custom seat section. Our customer service staff is ready to help to create the perfect seat to meet the performance and style demands of any rider.
