Harley-Davidson Expands Its Custom Seat Program For Sportsters And Is Launching New Parts.

hd1hd2Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Accessories® has expanded its popular Custom Seat Program to include two saddles for 2004-later Sportster models. Using the Custom Seat website a customer can create a seat in one of more than 1,300 design options, print out the seat design, and bring it to a participating Harley-Davidson dealer.

The dealer places the seat order, and it will arrive at the dealership in a few weeks. The program makes creation of a custom seat easy and predictable.

hd3hd4hd5The Custom Seat Program for Sportster models includes the solo Brawler® ($399.95) and two-up Sidekick® ($499.95) seats, each covered in premium black cowhide.

Each seat can be customized with one of 13 stitch patterns executed in one of 10 thread colors. The pattern is created with contrasting inlay leather embossed with a snakeskin, alligator or ostrich texture, offered in a variety of colors.

With 1,300 combinations available, the only limit is the customer’s imagination. The new seat fitments are available for most 2004-later Sportster models. The existing program covers many Touring, Softail and Dyna models. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for fitment details or go to www.h-d.com/customseat.

Harley-Davidson also offers a Chizeled Handlebar in black or chrome with a classic Z-bar shape and cast bends for ease of internal wiring, a Sportster chrome engine stabilizer, and to celebrate its summer’s 110th Anniversary celebration 2 styles of flags

    Is this really a big deal?

    It is a big deal for those folks like my wife Judy who got on the H-D Custom Seat Website, designed a seat for her 2009 XL1200L Sportster using the choices made available, only to be told a week and a half after placing the order thru the local dealer in Nashville that these seats aren’t available for the Sportster models per H-D. She complained to their customer relations dept. and was told she (the rep. she spoke with on the phone) would look into it and get back with her, which she did the following day only to say what the dealer had learned. I sent a detailed letter to H-D with screen snap shots displaying the process, and of yet another one of their web sites advertising the availability of said seat customization, but received no response. However, on June 28th my wife received a message from H-D stating, “This is to acknowledge that our customer service department has received your letter. A customer service representative will review your concern and contact you soon.” I tryed reviewing this seat mentioning this message in my review, and noting that evidently “soon” was a relative term. I’m not sure if they were referring to the letter I sent, as I wasn’t sure how they got her e-mail address, since it wasn’t in the letter. In any event, it was to be an anniversary gift to Judy, but as of yet, we hadn’t heard any good news. So yes, it is a big deal to me, and if you saw her bike, this would just be the icing on the cake. It was a real disappointment, but would seem that maybe H-D don’t care, nor need the business. Shame on them!

    I want to update my blog that I posted on July 18th. My last comment of my blog read ‘Shame on them’, referring to Harley-Davidson, but let me say now, Shame on me! I say that because as it turns out, Harley-Davidson’s customer service did try and get a hold of me, but I had mistakenly given them my old office phone number instead of my home number that I thought I’d given in the letter I sent to them. My wife decided to call and referenced the number on the e-mail she’d received, and that’s when things took off. I guess no one’s sure what happened inasmuch as us being told it wasn’t available, because as it turned out, the wonderful H-D customer service representative that took ownership of my complaint, secured the seat for us and it is now on Judy’s bike. I want to give H-D a big thanks, and say that these folks know what customer service is, and I want to say thanks to the wonderful lady that took care of us. The seat is beautiful, and is as we had hoped. It’s the icing on the cake. So, once again, in response to D.P. Farley, ‘Yes! It is really a big deal, and one well worth the money!’ Thank you Harley-Davidson! Give that girl a big raise! I wish I could post a picture of Judy’s bike on this site.
