Tractor Seats

Was looking around for an alternative seat and style, took a liking to the 'distressed leather' look and found these guys.

Mother Road Customs https://motherroadcustoms.com/

"We do make triumph bobber seats. You can see the pictures attached to see a couple of them on customers bikes. They are constructed with twice the thickness of steel than our other tractor seats. The ones in the pictures are 15x14". Our customers were very happy with them. The Triumph bobber seats are $399.00 plus $14.00 shipping. We make these as they are ordered. We have not put them on the website yet"

Nice. Don’t know if they’d be as comfortable as a Corbin but they have a really good look.

Nice looking seats and always great to see more and more options for the Bobber.
Thanks for sharing.

Darn good looking bike in those pictures. Not too sure about the rusty old Dodge truck though......... I spent months working on that seat design with them , it is on @Roy bike now.

I didn't include in my quote from them, but they also offer an additional gel-cell layer for an extra $90.

Bit of kit on that luggage rack mate, how heavy. What do you reckon the safe payload might be. AND did you have to gloss the item over or was the black finish a good match for the Bobber paint

I filled the pack to the brim on a trip to Texas , USA from my place in Georgia. Did a nine day , nearly 3,000 mile trip with it (and the saddlebags) and had everything I needed. The rack came black , and fit the bike perfectly , it just requires drilling. As for the weight in the pack , I would say it was about 15 pounds.

So far behind , I think I'm in first place.

I thought this looked a lot like your seat! As Eisen said, it's great to have options. Loving my Corbin though, so I doubt a change will be coming soon for me.
