Tim Monroe of Anaheim, California had a Suzuki Bandit 1200 that was basically a good bike, but it was old and not really worth selling, so Tim decided to breath some new life into it with some customization.
Being a fan of the streetfighter movement, he went that route, replacing the headlights with a small unit from Europe, adding a custom shorty exhaust and abbreviating the tail section for a solo-only ride. The paint went a bit retro, with everything coated in flat black except for the wheels, which were powder coated red.
Tim came to Saddlemen for his new custom seat, since he had shortened the stock seat base by about eight inches and needed something cool to matched the bike’s theme. The result: this SaddleGel-equipped beauty with pinstriping inspired by Von Dutch.
Saddlemen’s Tattoo embroidery process adds stylish, deeply sculpted flames onto a good looking, very functional solo seat. Inside, SaddleGel makes sure you’re comfortable, too.
The special Tattoo embroidery is unique to Saddlemen, and provides a strong, solid stitch that resists the elements, as well as wear and fraying. This is one tough stitch. The Tattoo Solo is a bit lower than stock, which makes the SaddleGel comfort all the more remarkable, as you don’t expect to find this level of comfort in a seat this good looking.
SaddleGel is a viscoelastic silicon gel that reduces vibration and fatigue, and makes every trip more enjoyable. And it’s nice to know that all Saddlemen seats are proudly made in the USA. The Tattoo Solos for Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom and Classic models have an MSRP of $299.95.
Bike builders have been trusting Saddlemen with their custom seats for almost two decades; give them a call at 800-397-7709, or visit www.saddlemen.com. Saddlemen seats are found in the Parts Unlimited catalog, and are available at most fine motorcycle accessory retailer.
