These two pictures are of the same custom leather BMW motorcycle seat. The guy had cut the seat down before he brought it to me. All the ripples on it were done with hand sewing (needle and thick bee's waxed thread). I also braided around his saddle bag flaps - that doesn't show very well here.
Harley saddles: a solo seat and pad (right), solo (below right) and a king and queen (below).
A Triumph Motorcycle saddle that I re-covered using braided seams.
A Harley Panhead saddle and pad. I also braided around these saddlebag flaps.
leather motorcycle seats or saddles that I have custom re-covered using braided leather include Harley Davidson's, BMW's, and Yamaha's. I have also done car seats. I wish I had more pictures of the many other braided leather motorcycle seats I have done.
