This is a build I am doing fabrication on for Kool Daddies Motor Cicles for his customer Chris , knocked out some pipes and seat pan so far. It's tuning out to be a cool little scoot.

So I know this is a bit different and not Motorcycle related but none the less it's leather. It was a simple fix the bottom had rotted out and was brought to me to fix. It's always interesting trying something new. I'm just glad it worked out LOL
Charlie called awhile back and said he had gotten a new chop but the seat was like riding a boot, so he sent me a seat filled with carpet foam and yoga mats. LOL ouch no wonder it was rough!
anyways I hooked him up with something a bit more comfy. Hope you enjoy it Brother !
This was a hell of a fix , and a bit scary for the owner. When you see this on your bike I would think stuff starts going through your head like " what if that snapped off while on the highway" . Kinda scary, this bike was supposed to come to me awhile back but with my schedule it didn't work out. So the build was taken to another local shop. Long story short plumbing pipe and exhaust tubing does not equal safe ! Good thing was the other shop paid to have me fix it so hats off to them for standing up to the plate.
All right people out there, I have decided to run a couple of production upholstered seats. You can find these on For Sale at the http://workingmanscustoms.bigcartel.com/store check it out and support small business.

I repaired this belt for Teacher John a couple of months ago. The belt belonged to his pops and was in need of some repair. I plucked out the old glued in lettering and tooled in some new letters and hand stitched the insert back in. Messing with 30 year old leather is not fun but it was awesome keeping an heirloom in a family.
Finished this seat for Cody a couple of months ago for R.O.T rally here in Austin back in June. It was A tight time frame for me. I had to hand off the elephant hide to the embroidery shop to do their thing with the lettering before I could finish up my part.If I remember correctly he picked up the first day of R.O.T. Anyways tight time frame and all the quality is still top priority and Cody walked away a happy customer.
Doug contacted me a while back about a seat for a xs650 build he had bought as a basket case from a customer I had welded a hardtail for awhile back.He really liked one of the Virgin of Guadeloupe seats I had done a few years ago.Since none of my seats are the same I came up with a new but similar design for this project . Doug dug( lol, had to say that) the final design and I whipped it out for him.
