Café Racer Custom Seat

ballard1ballard2I told you several times that Café Racers are back. And the best in the seat business begin to receive orders to fit the new ones built around the country. For example seat master Duane Ballard got a request early this month from Bill Dodge at Blings Cycles to form a seat for his new Café Racer project. Most café style seats are just made out of a piece of foam, covered with vinyl and attached with snaps. Duane has created a full seat, starting off with a custom pan, then shaped and formed the foam for maximum comfort. The top of this one is made out of 7 oz #1 grade cowhide that can be tooled with anything you desire. The sides are #1 grade cowhide and include snaps needed to attach the seat to the tail section.

    Bill does great work and I love to see products from Duane. Lisa and Duane are great people and it seams they are doing well even in this poor economy.

    Can’t wait to see the build. Keep up the good work guys!
