Saddleman Fit Perfectly?

Postby italianmotofest » Tue Aug 14, 2012 7:53 am



Can anyone tell me if the Saddleman seat H147 fits a '82 Aspy? Does it fit ok, length wise, with the rear box and box bracket?

Thanks,
Bill

Thanks Steve!

What I want to know is will the new complete seat fit on the Aspy with the top box on?

It looks as though the high backrest for the passenger will not fit with the top box and vracket.

Anyone?

From what I've read it WILL fit, but the topcase lid won't open far enough to remain open by itself.
A relocation kit (or 83 bracket) should fix that.

You know, I have tried all the aftermarket seats on both my Wings and my Harleys. The only thing that has made my ride more comfortable was an airhawk air filled seat pad. The gel didn't work. The saddleman seats didn't work.
