  • Model


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
Solo Spring Saddle is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly the look I wanted This is the perfect look I was going for on my softail blackline. I do feel I sit a tad higher than the stock seat or tuck and roll solo seat. The only thing I didn't like is that the description says easy switch out to a two up seat. There is no way to switch out seats easily. You would have to remove all wiring to remove the spring bracket which doesn't seem that easy. All in all I am in love with the way this seat makes my blackline look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Spring Saddle Replaced my stock 2016 Sportster 48 saddle. I must say, you get what you pay for... The seat has a very heavy duty pan. Leather is A+ quality. Fitment is perfect. No messing around to install. I have only ridden about 100 miles on it but will say it is firm and supportive. Like other reviewer, seat height is a little bit up and forward. Not an issue at all. Great saddle if you want that vintage solo seat look. Don't forget the mounting kit (even tho I thing it should have been included).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dark Glossy Black Good looking seat, brings you forward a bit... You will NEED to buy the spring set for your bike. This is the seat and some leather protection only...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Look I wanted This solo spring saddle gave my bike the look I was going for. I do feel like it puts you a tad higher and more forward, which was a bit of a concern for me since i am 6'1. After installing extended foot controls it all evens out. It is very comfortable and actually puts my hips at better position for longer rides. Somewhere it mentions swapping this back out with a standard seat or a two-up seat quick and easy. I dont see anything quick nor easy about swapping this seat out. In fact, make sure you have a battery pig tail because the seat doesnt remove easily in emergencies. Still overall, i love it, the way it rides, and the way it looks.

Is this just a seat, or is it springs, pan, hardware and everthing for set-up?

Asked by: Georgiadigger
According to another previous reviewer and an answer I got from my local dealer, the answer is yes, it is just the seat, the hardware is additional cost. And is disappointing. It should be sold as a complete package and hopefully more affordable.

What's the shipping weight of saddle 54373-10?

Asked by: Katherine
Hello Katherine! The shipping weight for only the Solo Spring Saddle is undermined as H-D has 3 shipping options as opposed to weight imposed shipping. Thanks!
