New Old Stock (NOS) Harley-Davidson "Buddy" seat. Has never been mounted on a motorcycle!
This could be used for a motorcycle restoration, if a person so choose, but in this condition it makes for a great conversation piece as wall art in the garage too. Great for any antique motorcycle novelty collection.

This has a date code of 1976 on the bottom, and was likely used on Harleys in the late 70's. The under side is in excellent shape and apparently has never been mounted on a motorcycle, due to the fact that mounting bolts still have black coating on the threads. The stitching is still immaculate all over the seat too! The only obvious flaws are some light colored scuff marks on top the seat, of which considering it's white in color, should be expected for its age. I've included a couple pics, but these really don't deter much from the seat, and might be able to be rubbed out.

Highly collectible item for a Harley-Davidson restoration or any enthusiast.
Great gift idea!

Shipping policies

*** HOLIDAY SHOPPERS - I will be shipping daily. In most cases, your item will be shipped same day, or next day if order is placed later in the day. Orders placed before December 20th will be delivered to you by Christmas. ***

I work an intense schedule onsite for various projects and I'm frequently on the road, so I typically only ship once a week. If you need something in a shorter time frame than this, please feel free to contact me before placing an your order, and I'm sure we can work something out to fit your needs.

All items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail, and shipping prices for each item include insurance to cover the listed purchase price.

I do not ship over seas... Sorry. In some occasions, I might be able to send e-mail a digital file of a particular image, if it was photographed in digital format. Please see Additional Information below on this subject.

Additional policies

I typically do not take customer orders. My items are already in stock in their own particular size and frame, if frame is included.
I do not ship items over seas, but in some cases, I might be able to e-mail a hi-res digital file of a particular image, if it was photographed in digital format. Please keep in mind that I got started in photography before digital cameras were available, so many of my prints seen on Etsy were from negatives and slides. All these request are priced on a case by case basis, and in most cases will be priced higher than the actual prints available.
*** Due to an increased amount of cancellations, I will not honor any requests for order cancellations. If you place an order, it is binding and will be fulfilled on my end. ***
