Looks like someone recovered it. Built off a stock seat. Looks good!

The leather's even aged. Usually when you get that badass grey look, the stitching starts to go. That's really well done, aged leather is always awesome...

Good lookin' custom seat ...
It looks to be a bit wider for the passenger too. Nice feature.
I was going to buy a ButtyBuddy for the wife to go on mine. The seat you have looks to not have the need.

Yeah, it is different, but it looks good and may even be better than Ma Kawi`s original, as per all previous comments.

How do you and any pillon passengers find it for comfort? That`s the real issue here.

This is my first bike and I'm new to riding. Only have about 50 miles on it of my own. So no passengers for me for a while.

I always wondered about that. Here's a differing opinion about batteries on concrete (if I did the link correctly). Or just Google it. Food for thought.
