When we build your seat, it is hand crafted and tailored to your individual likes and needs.  We pay special attention to detail.  

     Check out our section called Customer's Bikes with Our Seats to see our seats on bikes like  yours and to read some of our customer's comments.

 

Seat Ideas and Information:

Designs - Sewn or Inlayed

Exotics (Real) or Faux

Leathers - All Weather Vinyls

      Whether you sit in the front or the back, your seat should not bite you, make your back sore, nor make you shift forward.  Your personal space and width should accommodate your size. The driver should be able to be flat-footed.  Driver's having a backrest should not be cramped or not touching.   Riders come in all sizes.  Bar Enterprises makes certain that our seats accommodate the driver and the passenger.  When you arrive, you should be relaxed and feeling good.

Got the bike done this weekend just in time to enjoy some gorgeous weather.
I put some instructions in the step by step for a Honda VTX 1300/1800.
 
Second email are some pix of the bike by Eagle Bay in Juneau, AK.  The glacier was too crowded with tourists.  I'll get you a picture with the glacier soon.
 
I hope you like these and will post to your site.  Seat is GREAT !!
 
Thanks.

Bare frame with rear tank bolt in place

  Put front mounting bracket through hole and slide nut up underneath.  It should take about 2-3 full  turns to secure.  Make sure you start with the tube angled back.

 

 

   

 

  You have to file about 1/4" off the mounting nut which is under the rear tank mount bolt hole.

 

 

Rear Tank Mount Hole:

Original mounting nut is underneath the large hole and it is welded on.  It must be filed down for new nut to engage threads on front bracket.  It is a pain but necessary.

I added the rest of the mounting kit (spring bracket) as the seat rode too low the fender.  I  thought I had scraped the new paint , but actually wore a small hole in the material on the bottom of the seat.  Very hard to see unless you know it's there.
 
So I added the rest of the mounting kit, so here is the alternate way to mount, this one is preferred, and the new correct angle makes the seat more comfortable.
 
Thanks again.

These two pictures show before and after

Picture above is showing with back bracket in use


Picture above is showing without back bracket and therefore body weight is able to compress springs far enough to mar the fender.  Therefore back bracket is necessary.


 

 

 

 
Alan,

Thanks a lot for your details on how to mount and mounting problem encountered.  I am sure that you have helped many who are considering or attempting to do what you have done.

Your bike looks great and your workmanship is very professional and clean. 

Let me know when you chain up for your Alaskan roads!  :)
