"Slammed Pro Tour" For 1997-2007 Harley-Davidson Touring Models Nears Release

Todds-Cycle-For-Web

During the next few weeks, a new version of our Slammed Pro Tour Seat will be available for purchase.

This saddle is designed to fit Harley-Davidson Baggers/Tourers for the 1997 to 2007 model year range, and features the same top-of-the-line layout and materials used with our initial Signature Seat, for 2008-2010 models (shown at left).

Designed in collaboration with Todd Silicato, noted custom bike builder, and founder of Todd's Cycles of Huntington Beach, California, these seats are the ultimate low-profile, bagger seat that still provides acceptable comfort, support and riding endurance for touring.

Specifically, the new version Slammed Tour Pro is built to fit FLHX & FLHTC models, while also fitting FLHTC, FLHR, FLTR and FLHT designations. They are designed to look best and mate with the center dash of the Street Glide and Road King, models, and they will also fit other Harley-Davidson Touring machines, but there will be a gap between the seat’s nose and the center dash. The seat will fit bikes fitted with, or without, saddlebag guards.

Saddlemen is proud to work with respected designers and builders like Todd, combining manufacturing experience, acclaimed style, and the knowledge of what riders need and want, to create the best seats possible.

 

Huntington Beach’s Todd’s Cycles Teams With Saddlemen To Create Inaugural Saddle For New Collection

11885-0801-0579-posting1

Saddlemen is proud to unveil the first of an ongoing series of exciting cooperative projects with top-of-the-line motorcycle builders and designers to produce innovative and stylish new seats.

Our first effort, the Slammed Pro Tour combines the proven, popular Pro Tour seat design with refinements and the styling experience of Todd Silicato, founder of Huntington Beach, California’s Todd’s Cycles. Todd sculpted the seat to drop down into the bike for a low riding position that also helps the rider touch the ground with confidence at stops. The aim – to create the ultimate low-profile, bagger seat that’s acceptable for touring.

As with the standard Pro Tour, this comfortable seat is made with Saddlemen’s famous combination of progressive density foam and SaddleGel™ in the seating areas, easing tailbone pressure and improving circulation for a smooth, comfortable ride.

We feel the new Signature Seats will prove to be an exciting addition to the Saddlemen product line. We look forward to proudly showing what our expertise and technology can do, when teamed up with well-respected designers and builders, to make riding more comfortable, stylish and enjoyable.

Saddlemen had the interesting opportunity recently to design and produce a highly modified seat for Victory Motorcycles’ new camera bike kit. This kit allows compatible stock Victory machines to be quickly and temporarily converted for on-road photographic use. Besides the Saddlemen re-worked saddle, the setup also includes shielding for the rear wheel, running gear and exhaust.

Our rebuild included a special front-and-back pad on the driver’s backrest for use by both riders, a modified passenger backrest with storage pouch, our famous SaddleGel inserts in the seating areas, and a new custom seat cover.

Victory plans to use this setup for their own corporate advertising use, as well as making it available for loan or rental.

Victory Motorcycles is a part of Polaris Industries, also makers of snowmobiles and ATVs.

At Saddlemen we thrive on the chance to show our expertise and creativity, no matter how unusual the project.

Saddlemen Bag and Luggage Accessories

Our Bag & Luggage Accessories section offers items that can fine tune the mounting, securing and performance of our motorcycle storage products:

  • The same styles of bungees and straps that come with our SaddleStow luggage line are available separately, whether for added stability and security, or to replace lost or damaged pieces.
  • Saddlebag liners add another layer of protection for your valuables, and let you quickly unload your bike without having to remove your bags.
  • Alternate saddlebag “yokes,” like our Versa-Mount, give the rider more choices and convenience.
  • Turn signal relocator kits are available to allow the mounting of saddlebags on many of the hardest-to-fit motorcycle models.
