    A A A

    How low can you go? This minimalist solo seat takes the stripped-down garage-built look about as far as you can go.

    • Thick distressed black leather cover is bonded directly to the formed metal seat pan and minimizes the foam filler and the extra height it brings
    • Raw-edge leather features brass rivets and “Milwaukee Since 1903” trim that will develop a rich patina with use
    • Bar & Shield logo embossed into the leather surface as a finishing touch
    • When equipped with the available model-specific Rigid Mount Kit, the smooth metal seat pan gets you close to the frame for a “one-with-the-bike” riding experience
    • Bolt-on seat and a model-specific installation kit includes everything you need to get the bobber look
    • Easy to install - No cutting, welding, or fabrication is necessary

        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.


        Bobber Solo Saddle is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
        Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! This seat is really nice. Yes, it's basically a piece of metal with a little leather on it but it looks really good. I used the rigid mount on my Iron 883 and I am now pretty much sitting on the rear fender, it's as low as you can go. Completely changed the look of my bike. Comfort? doesn't bother me. I rode 2.5 hours straight and was fine. What I like best about it is that it put me into a perfect riding position for my height and setup. Feels great. This is one of the best things I've done to my bike.

        Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look, great ride Everyone always asks how painful the seat is and they never believe me when I tell them I never notice. Well, after a few hours of riving I notice, but there's never any pain. I love the seat, I love the feeling of being closer to the road with it. And in my book, the bobber style just can't be beat :-D

        Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome seat, but has mounting issues First let me say, this seat is GREAT. Gives the bike a whole new look. But the problem is with the mounting hardware that you buy separate from HD. You are suppose to able to use this seat with the spring saddle mount kit or the rigid seat mount kit. I went with the spring saddle mount kit. The problem is that the bolts that come with the mount kit DO NOT fit the seat pan. The bolts are way too big. The seat does not come with bolts also. Luckily my local HD dealer found some bolts for me that would fit in the seat, but i still had to cut them a little shorter to work. Other than that, the seat is sweet!

        Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great seat with one annoyance. Good comfortable seat, looks great and gets a lot of attention. My only complaint is that the pressed logo on the seat does not last long. After less than 100 miles, the bar and shield lost its indentation and smoothed out with the rest of the seat, becoming nearly invisible. Was expecting better for the money, and from HD.

        Q & A

        Can I install easily or do I need installation kit as well as the seat

        I am interested in buying the seat but I was wondering if I needed to buy the installation kit as well.

        Does it fits the 2016 breakout? what instalation kit do I need?

        2006 Springer Softail FXSTSI

        Is there an installation kit that I can use to get this seat to fit my bike please. It is a standard 200 rear end model.
        Asked by: Patches282
        Hi Patches282, Unfortunately, the Bobber Solo Saddle does not fit with the 2006 FXSTSI. We do not have seat similar to the Bobber to fit your bike. Thanks!

        2004 XL1200C Fitment

        The website states that the seat will fit a 2004 XL1200C. The mounting hardware options are not that clear. For the Rigid Mount option the 2004 bike is not part of the fitment list. Is there a way to get a rigid fit on an 2004 model?
        Asked by: Schalk
        Hello Schalk, It appears there was an oversight in the fitment of the Rigid mounting kit. That should fit your 2004 as well. Thank You!
