Saddlemen Seat And Luggage Equips Antique Motorcycle On Coast-To-Coast Adventure

Vintage 1913 Bike Completes Two-Week, Cross-Country Endurance Run


Saddlemen congratulate Mike Vils on his completion of this year's Cannonball Motorcycle Endurance Run, riding a beautifully maintained 1913 Excelsior motorcycle. We are also proud that Mike made his coast-to-coast trek with a Saddlemen seat, and using Saddlemen luggage.

Starting on Friday, September 10th, near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, 45 pre-1916 motorcycles set off on a two-week rally across the nation, with 37 riders and machines completing the trip 16 days later in Santa Monica, California. The course ran just under 3,300 miles.

We plan to post an interview with Mike about the rally, and his interest in vintage motorcycles, in the near future.

Whether for motorcyles nearly a century old, or for the latest new bike off the assembly line, Saddlemen offers a wide range of top-of-the-line seats , as well as our expert customizing and refurbishing services. Along with seating solutions, our ever-expanding range of innovative motorcycle luggage provides great quality with unsurpassed value.
