Biltwell HB Seat For Harley Sportster 2004-2006 / 2010-2016
Tuck n Roll- 883 2016
The seat looks very nice, and is kinda confortable. It is a bit different from the original seat I had.
I wouldn't recommend it for the 2016 883 because it had a big gap between the seat and the gas tank. I returned it, and got me the mustang. The mustang seat is much better.

Tuck n Roll
I brought the Tuck n Roll model and it is a very nice seat. Good look and feel. The riding position is a little different but I got sure to it. Solid set for the price.

Needs mod to not ruin paint
I returned this seat. It is a low profile, old school cool look, but not the best made. It is a plastic base pan and the vinyl is attached with staples. If you don't do something to cover up the staples, I imagine they will dig into your paint. Additionally, the tongue that slides into the front, doesn't sit well and allows the seat to move. Not too noticeable when riding but it moves.
I wouldn't buy this again unless i wanted to save money and was going to do some mod so as to protect my bike.

Comfortable, sleek and sexy...
I just completed some tank fab and a paint makeover on my Sporty and wanted to top it off with this sexy beast of a seat. I've only had it for a week, but it seems very comfortable. My wife says it's ok, but this isn't really a passenger "comfort" seat, however she manages and is a real trooper... For longer rides I have a pad I'll throw on back there for her, problem solved. My main issue was to have a sexy slim seat that I could put the wife on for short trips without having to put the hideous, gigantic and damned ugly 2-up stock Sportster seat back on. I also wanted something on the rear fender at all times so when I ride solo and have a backpack on it doesn't rub on my paint. Plenty of room under the seat, I have extra plugs for the VH Fuelpak and 2 load balancers for my LED breaklights and still room to spare. They're are 2 raised areas on the bottom of the seat that ride on the frame, I could probably shave those down some so make the seat sit even lower. I may still do that. Right now I just can't stop looking at my bike. Also, those are the Biltwell Keystones Handlebars and Gringo helmet in pics, which I highly recommend both. Great job Biltwell.

Perfect for the price.
Looks good, feels good, and won't break the bank. Could be slightly more comfortable, but overall a solid seat.

Great quality seat and the diamond stitch pattern is classic. However, the seat does not fit perfectly on my bike. There is just a little bit of wiggle room between the seat and the frame, which is no big deal for me I love the seat, it's safe, and I will continue to use it for a long time. Just something to point out for those perfectionist types.

I loved the look of this seat and the reviews I found were promising. The seat arrived and looked better in person than any picture I found. I got the diamond stitch because I thought it was a nicer overall look. The seat has great low lines that dramatically improved the look and flow of the bike. I had previously installed a old school styled sissy bar and this seat completed the look. The thin pan allows for more padding that you would think looking at the seat. Don't mistake for a full touring seat though. I find this seat more comfortable than stock out of the box. It is a little stiff but that's easily remedied with some miles. At this price you shouldn't even have to think about getting this seat.

Awesome styling - comfortable enough
The biltwell honeybagger improves the look of the motorcycle over the stock seat tremendously. The front of the seat does not butt up to the rear of the tank. Could be good or bad depending on your preference. I really enjoy that extra space as it mimics the space in the front of a lifted tank. The only downside is that its not much of an improvement in comfort over the stock seat. I've had it for about 500 miles which means its still essentially new. Once it has time to break in I'm certain the seat will soften a bit. The passenger pillion is slightly narrow depending on your size. Smaller individuals may find it more comfortable. Overall the lack of comfort is tolerable on longer rides but I'm not one to complain. I would recommend this seat to anyone looking for a 2up option for short-medium rides unless you are not inclined to complained - in that case enjoy the awesome "throwback" styling.
