Some Harley-Davidson® seats are made of leather. Fine leathers or other natural materials WILL gain "character," such as wrinkles or wear, with age. This is normal. A fine, aged patina and character wrinkles are a sign of the extremely high quality materials used to construct your seat or backrest. The appearance of scars or marks on the leather are a result of using natural leather panels and should not be thought of as an imperfection. Please use Harley-Davidson® Leather Protectant P/N 93600034 to protect your investment.

    Spring seat mounting hardware kit
Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Seat! I bought this seat for my FLS and really like it. It looks good with the Black Denim paint scheme. I know it's a bit pricey but the bike itself isn't that cheap either meaning if you can afford the bike you can afford the seat and mount kit. The spring kit is sold separately but it is heavy duty and well made. The bottom of the seat has a heavy steel plate. The factory seat that came on the bike had a plastic plate and felt flimsy and cheap. I rode my new FLS one time on that factory seat before I put this one on there. Would recommend this seat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Solo Spring Saddle Great Quality....... If you need it and you probably will beware of the surprise if you don't read closely. SOLD SEPARATELY Spring seat mounting hardware kit additional 250.00 at least April 25, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Good quality but it´s look ugly on a Heritage Classic I bought this seat for my "sand pearl / canyon brown" 2014 Heritage Classic. The price is much to high for this Seat because you have to buy the mounting kit for the nearly the same price as the seat (nearly $580,- plus tax, shipping and handling). I mounted the seat on my Bike an what can I say? Its looks ugly! The seat is much to small for the Bike, the springs of the mounting kit are the same for each side so it´s looks from behind that the seat is not in the middle of the bike. It´s have to two different springs!!! One day later I put everything back in the Box and like to return it to the HD Dealer in Naples Florida, were I bought this seat to days earlier, but they didn´t want to take it back. Never ever I buy any stuff before I can see the parts with my own eyes! Dont buy this seat if you have a Softail, the seat is much to small for this Bike! March 26, 2014

All Leather?

Like most things made today, if is says it is "leather" than only a small part is real leather and to save money, the rest is the fake stuff. Is one tone of this seat real leather and the other tone faux? Thank you.

That is a great question. Both tones are made of high quality real leather.
Please keep in mind that this item does not include the seat mounting hardware.

Thank you
