DS Motorcycle Seat with Built-In Rain Cover

Motorcycle Seats

The innovations continue at Drag Specialties Seats for Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Known for such technological advances as solar-reflective leather, Drag Specialties Seats pulls another first with "The Convertible" backrest with built-in seat cover.

"The Convertible" is a complete backrest and pouch assembly that has a seat rain cover that pulls out of the pouch on the backside of the pad and covers the seat in a moment’s notice.

The rain cover is secured in the pouch by two snaps and can be removed for cleaning or to use the oversized pouch for additional storage.

It’s as easy to use as one, two, three: simply lay the backrest forward, unzip the pouch, remove the rain cover and pull it around the perimeter of the seat to secure around the sides for added protection against sun, rain and mildew.

As comfortable as it is useful, the backrest pad features solar-reflective leather on contact areas, while pouch and pad sides are high-quality automotive-grade vinyl. Rain-resistant cover is made of high-quality 300 x 300 denier polyester fabric with a urethane coating that’s water- and mildew-resistant (WRMR). All exposed hardware is polished with a show-chrome finish and the internal base is sturdy 14 gauge steel.

For added convenience, the backrest can be used in driver or passenger position and adjusts 2" fore/aft and 2" vertically (in three positions). Pad measures 10" W x 7 1/2" and is available for all Drag Specialties Double Bucket or Low Profile Touring Seats with EZ Glide ITM and EZ Glide IITM backrest systems.

Made in the U.S.A.
MSRP: $229.95
