The seats for our 1937 Flathead

When it came to the seat for the 1937 Flathead project I had something special in mind; I wanted to tie in Horween and a craftswoman I'd been wanting to work with.  
I found two seat pans to cover; an original Bates pan for the race and an original Harley Davidson solo seat just for fun.  I reached out to Horween to get some special leather and they scored us some old stock calfskin they still had from 1940.
I connected with "Ginger McCabe from New Church Moto in Oregon who’s artful touch combined with priceless 70 year old leather made the prefect seat for our bike.  It's just too cool.  

Fun twist; doing two seat couldn’t have been ended up better for the new part of the journey!   After TROG I’ll be riding the bike across the county on the Harley Davidson solo seat!
