Saddlemen seats - available direct

A rep from Saddlemen replied to me on another site stating they do still make and sell the VN750 seat, but their distributor no longer carries it, so it has to be ordered direct from them. Their contact page is here.

No word on price.

I really need a new seat, badly. I'm taking long rides lately, and my ass is not happy with the stock seat anymore.

I've emailed Saddlemen to see what the deal is with this seat. I'll keep everyone posted....

Maybe they'll give a discount on a group order if everyone orders the same style? I would consider one for my wife's bike, but no thanks on studs.

I wouldn't mind a different seat if the price was right, but I'm not a fan of studs, tassels or anything else but black.

Sure, it's taller and wider. Also requires some break in. Looks fantastic. Comfort is much better than stock.
