Hartco started the sheepskin seat cover craze in 1980 and has since been the leader in this specialty.  We can custom build a perfectly fitted sheepskin cover for any motorcycle seat.

Best Custom-Built Aftermarket Seats

Our custom-built, replacement seats are constructed one at a time according to your specifications and needs. If you are a tall rider and need to be further away from the bars or get your knees out of the fairing, we can build your motorcycle seat back to gain you up to two full inches. If you need a “big man” seat, we can build one for the heaviest of riders. If you are tired of reaching and stretching to get your feet on the ground or just want to sit lower, the Hartco saddle will be constructed as low as possible and narrowed where appropriate.  Just let us know.

Most comfortable Honda Goldwing seat for the long ride

Need that extra 100 miles? Hartco makes the most comfortable aftermarket seats. They are the most popular motorcycle seats in the world. Each motorcycle seat foam is hand fabricated for the height, weight and inseam of rider and passenger. We use the finest materials including visco-elastic memory foam developed by NASA for the space shuttle combined with dual density, self-conforming, polyurethane foam formulated for the best motorcycle seats to provide total body support without creating painful pressure points during extended rides. This allows the rider to ride IN the seat rather than ON the seat.

Ride with style and comfort

Hartco Seats International will build your custom replacement Honda Goldwing seat with style in mind. Are you looking to complement your bike with the color of your new motorcycle seat? Many velour (cloth) colors and color combinations are available. Looking for embroidered wolves or eagles, exotic skins, classy stitching styles, chrome studs, skirts, and/or conchos? Hartco offers custom fitted sheepskin motorcycle seat covers for almost any motorcycle seat. We can put your new Hartco motorcycle seat together to match the style and comfort you are looking for.

Customer Comments

I received my new seat for my Yamaha Roadstar 1700 on July 16th.  I rushed to install the new saddle because I had a trip planned that week.   My first day I rode 340 miles.  I am 5'6" tall and weigh 190.  Hartco built the seat to my dimensions and what a ride.  I rode the first day all day with no butt pain...and, the seat just keeps getting better!  ~Patrick M.  Virginia

Dear Mark, Just a line to let you know that we love our new seat.  We took our first ride on our new Hartco seat to a Honda shop 120 miles away and never had to get off until we arrived.  How can this seat ever get better than this???!!!  Enclosed you will find a picture of our bike and new seat. ~Ed and Diane G.  Vermont

Dear Mark, Just a line to let you know that we love our new seat.  After about 70 miles on the old seat on our Goldwing I, as a
passenger, had to get off for a few minutes. We took our first ride on our new Hartco seat to a Honda shop 120 miles away
and never had to get off until we arrived.  How can this seat ever get better than this???!!! 
Last Sunday we traveled 381 miles round trip and only stopped for gas and food and never got sore butts or legs.  Enclosed you will find a picture of our bike and new seat.

After spending the day in Salt Lake City we decided basically to head for home. We left from Sioux Falls S.D. at 6 A.M. and rode straight 1017 miles arriving home at 11:30 PM.  We stopped for gas, food, and just stretching but made it.  Our iron butts were tired and sore but we could have NEVER ridden that far without our Hartco seat. ~Carol and Norm L.  KY.

We are very happy so far with our purchase from Hartco. ~John and Carole Z.  New Mexico

Like so many others, I am "vertically challenged". The conventional seat on my GL 1500 had me on my tip toes. After taking my height, weight, and inseam he explained how he would give me the extra comfort I wanted and the height I needed. The result was out of this world!!  The finished product is a real delight . ~Tony A. Uniontown Oh.

I recently had the good fortune to have a seat custom made by Hartco International in Crescent City Florida.  Like so many others, I am "vertically challenged". In talking with Mark Hart at Hartco, I was pleased by his personal interest in helping me with my saddle problem.  The conventional seat on my GL 1500 had me on my tip toes, but if I cut the foam myself the seat simulated a large brick.  Mark said he had experience with the problem. After taking my height, weight, and inseam he explained how he would give me the extra comfort I wanted and the height I needed. 
The result was out of this world!!  I would recommend Mark and all the folks at Hartco International motorcycle seats without hesitation.  The finished product is a real delight . ~Tony A. Uniontown Oh.

Can you tell me about the seat making process?

We do not compromise on quality during the making of your custom motorcycle seat. Each seat is hand-poured from the liquid polyurethane foam. The foam is then weighed on a gram scale to the exact proportions for the driver and passenger according to their height, weight and inseam. This method assures that each and every front and rear seating area is the perfect density. Then a skilled technician hand cuts and grinds each foam until the desired height and width is achieved.

The shape of the “bucket” for both rider and passenger is critical in a custom made motorcycle seat. A motorcycle seat or saddle that is flat simply won’t work. A human being rests on their Ischia Tuberosity’s, the boney protrusions off the pelvis. Sitting on anything flat creates undue stress to this area which causes the rider to constantly shift from one side to the other…the restless butt syndrome. The custom motorcycle seat must be contoured and sculpted to relieve the pressure on these two areas. If not, discomfort and even cases of Sciatica may occur. With proper shaping combined with the correct quality and density of foam, these manifestations of discomfort simply don’t occur.

What bike brands have you worked with your custom motorcycle seats?

We specialize in handcrafting the best bike seats for many of the best motorcycle brands. These include Kawasaki, BMW, Can-Am Spyder, Harley, Honda, Suzuki, Yamaha, 70s and 80s Saddles among others. All of our custom seats are optimized to your specific height and weight and designed to your exact specifications. Please give us a call today to discuss your particular needs with your specific bike.

Do you make custom seat covers as well?

Yes, we make only the best quality custom seat covers.  We make the best fitting replacement covers for the Honda GL1500 Goldwing on the market. The covers protect against heat and perspiration and can dress up the look of the bike with color matching. The cover we make for the seat covers the entire factory seat. We also make a cover for the passenger backrest and covers to fit any model driver’s backrest and armrests. We stock a myriad of colors to compliment the Honda paint colors and vinyl colors to closely match the vinyl Honda uses for their GL1500 Goldwings. The covers are easy to install and can be done on your kitchen table with no tools.  Our velour replacement covers for the Honda GL1500 Goldwing go over the existing cover.  You do not have to remove the factory cover to install them. The motorcycle seat covers fit so well that after a week it is difficult to tell the difference between our fitted covers and one of our custom seats. The covers stay in place and do not move around.

Do you make sheepskin covers?

Yes, making custom sheepskin motorcycle covers is our specialty. We make Sheepskin Motorcycle Seat Covers for Over 800 models. Hartco offers sheepskin motorcycle seat covers for Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, Harley Davidson, Suzuki, BMW, Victory, and Can-Am Spyders, There is no way we can show pictures of our entire line of sheepskin seat covers, so please be confident that the cover we design for your particular bike will fit as well as those pictured. Call us at 800-446-7772 so we can match the perfect motorcycle sheepskin seat cover to perfectly fit on your bike. Hartco International started the sheepskin seat cover craze in 1980 and continues to be the leader in this specialty.

Designed and crafted in Crescent City, FL, Hartco sheepskin motorcycle seat covers are the finest available. Our covers are constructed totally from 100% “velvet grade” sheepskin. No vinyl or other inexpensive material is used to lessen the cost of manufacturing. Our covers are sewn with industrial nylon thread and high-grade elastic is used to “lip” the cover under your seat all the way around for that “custom seat” appearance.

What is your warranty?

We offer a warranty on each product for one year for defects in components and workmanship. Velour fabrics are not warrantied against sun fading or wear. It is recommended that a Hartco seat or seat cover be kept out of the sun or covered with a rain cover, half-cover or full cover when in the sun. Modifications are available after the initial 3000 mile break-in period. The break-in period gives the foam in the seat time to soften in the right places and conform to the riders’ bodies better and for the riders’ to better understand Hartco’s concept of motorcycle seat comfort. Modifications are no-charge for the warranty period, after the break-in period of 3000 miles. Because the Hartco custom motorcycle seat is completely built from scratch to the stature and needs of each individual customer and will not fit anyone other than the original buyers, Hartco does not offer refunds.

How can we contact you?

We believe the best way to communicate with a customer is via the phone. We do not provide an email contact. We believe that talking directly to a customer is the best way for us to get to know you and for us to create and customize the most perfect custom motorcycle seat you have ever experienced.
