Saddle Craft Seating

We at Saddle Craft Seating are a small manufacturing and retail company based in South Shields who are specialising in all aspects of motorcycle seating. With past experience in manufacturing G.R.P. accessories and lightweight replacement parts for our own motorcycles, we progressed into making seats completing our first one for a circa 1982 over 30 years ago. Our skills and experience have developed since then, and although we still supply a range of G.R.P. products, seats have become our main line of business. We are offering a wide selection of services including: recovering, refoaming, reshaping, full seat restorations and bespoke designs, as well as creating our very own range of classic and custom seats. We have also been manufacturing our own Gel Pads as well since 2003, with excellent results and feedback.

For our seats, we stock a wide variety of vinyl’s in a range of textured finishes and colours as well as Alcantara suede and quality leather hides (samples of which can be sent to you upon request). If you are looking to add something a little different to your seat, we can also add logos or motifs of your own design, which can be embroidered into the covers for a truly bespoke touch.
