RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, Calif. - Saddlemen has released its Americano seat for Sportster applications, inspired by the classic seats of café racers.

The seat is available for Harley-Davidson Sportster models from 1979 to the present, with applications for both the peanut or large classic fuel tanks.

Saddlemen’s marine-grade SaddleHyde covers progressive-density foam and a SaddleGel top layer. Saddlemen shaped the seating area and rear hump to complement the bike’s lines and provide long-lasting comfort. The company also matched the seat pan to the bike for a “perfect fit.” The bolt-on design means no other hardware is necessary for installation.

Made in the U.S., the Americano is available in a modern pattern cover or a pleated “tuck ’n roll” style cover (pictured). Click here for a full application chart.

The Saddlemen Americano is available to dealers through Drag Specialties.
