The driver should be able to be flat-footed.  Driver's having a backrest should not be cramped or not touching.   Riders come in all sizes.  Bar Enterprises makes certain that our seats accommodate the driver and the passenger.  When you arrive, you should be relaxed and feeling good.

FAQ's, Terms and Policies

 

FAQís

Which of your seats will fit my bike?

We make all of our seats custom to order, so can make a pan in a solo or any of our 2-up models to fit your Harley Davidson models.  We make our pans to mount as stock, so they will fit your bike as long as your stock seat still fits your bike.  Right now, we have a pan design up thru 2009 Harley Davidson Bikes.  The exceptions:  Some Deuce seats, and the Rocker.  We do not carry a stock of pans for import bikes; however, there is always the option of sending us your existing seat.  We use the pan and create a Bar Enterprises seat for you!  To make sure we make the right pan for your bike you must tell us the correct year, make, and model of your bike

Do you make a tallboy/reach seat/ etc? 

Yes! Again, we are making you seat custom for you, so we make it to fit your body.  We donít carry a stock of ďreachĒ seats or ďtallboysĒ as not everyone is equally short or tall, but we will take information about your body, riding style, and specific comfort complaints to make your seat perfect! 

Do I have to tell you my weight?  Why do you ask so many personal questions? 

Just as all bikes are not created equal, nor are all bodies!  We want your seat to be perfect for you, and to do that, we need to know you.  Chances are you canít come to our shop, so we have to get as much information as possible to offer you the right materials and make the proper adjustments to your seat.  Some information you should be prepared to tell us:

        Your height

        Your weight, and how you carry it

        Your pant inseam

        Your age

This also applies to your passenger if you are getting a 2-up seat.  In the event the driver and passenger donít want to share this information with each other, each person can contact us directly.  We wonít put your data on our website; it is used solely for the purpose of making the seat. 

I have a bad back, hips, legs, etcÖcan you make me ride again? 

We obviously canít offer this guarantee, only you know your body and its ability.  We have helped many bikers with painful injuries ride more comfortably by adjusting for them.  Make sure to share these issues with us when you order so we can offer you options that have worked for others in the past. 

Can I put a spring seat on my bike?  How do I install the kit? 

We carry a few different kits for spring seats, but they do not cover all models of bikes.  Please check the Universal Mounting Kit page for options that we carry.  You can also buy a kit from any aftermarket parts dealer.  If you find a kit to fit your bike, we can make a spring seat pan to fit the kit.  If you are a little bit handy, you can put the kit on your bike yourself.  If you need help, feel free to call us at the shop at 818-353-3888 and we will walk you through it!

I canít find a price for what I want on the website, how much would it be forÖ..? 

The website was created to show examples of seats we can do.  You can take any seat style, add design, material, color, and foam.  It is something of a build-it-yourself project, with us doing the work!  Feel free to call or email us with your seat ideas and we will work you up a quote. 

I would like a seat like Kenís/Beckyís/etc. from the website, but I donít likeÖ.

No problem!  We encourage you to browse around and tell us what you do and do not like about other customerís seats, other manufacturerís seat, your stock seat, anything you can find to compare to.  You can specify thickness, width, height, color, materialsÖthe creative process is up to you!

I already have 3 seats from different manufacturers, what makes yours different?  I donít want to be stuck with another seat. 

The difference lies in the fact that we are making YOU a seat, not a seat for your BIKE.  We do not mass manufacture, nor assume that every rider is created the same.  If you have seats you donít like, send them to us!  Why pay for yet another seat?  You can send us one of your existing seats for adjustments, or a complete makeover, and save yourself some money in the process!

I like my current seat butÖ.

Want it to look cool?  Need it just a little lower?  Itís a bit old and needs new foam? The cover got trashed?  No problem!  Some people are perfectly happy with their existing seat, and we are happy for them.  We will make as many or as few changes as you need to create the perfect seat!

What is the order process?  What information do you need from me?

Once we have discussed and confirmed your seat design, we will make up an order for you.  For the paperwork end of things, we need your billing and shipping address, as well as credit card information.  We prefer credit card information via telephone or fax for your security

Once we have the order ready, we will email you a copy of it.  Please review it and let us know as soon as possible if something is incorrect.  We will not charge your credit card until your seat is complete and ready to ship, and at that time we will email you a UPS or USPS tracking number. 

Do you take PayPal?  What if I donít want to give you my credit card? 

Sorry, we do not take PayPal at this time.  If you prefer not to use a credit card, you can mail us a personal check or money order.  We will begin creating your seat when the payment clears the bank. 

Well, I found a seat for $XXX from another manufacturer, why is yours so much more/ less?  Will you match a competitorís price?

Just like any other product on the market, prices vary.  Often people are shocked at how affordable our seats areÖwhat can we say?  We ride too, and we like to offer a high quality product at a fair price! 

We do not mass manufacture, and we use only the highest quality materials. Because of these factors, we are unable to match a competitorís price. 

What if I donít like my seat? 

TELL US!  Communication is key in this process.  Most of the time we get it right, occasionally we donít.  If your seat is not comfortable, contact us and we will do our best to make adjustments to the seat! 

Can I come to the shop? 

YES!  In you are in the Southern California area, come see us!  We are open business hours weekdays, though around weekends and the busy season (Mid-spring through mid-fall) you may want to give a call first as we travel to many shows.  The best way to create a seat is in person, where you can see materials, hold colors to your bike, test foams, and be measured. 

Even if you arenít buying a seat right now, feel free to come on by and say Hi, we would like to meet you! 

I saw this seat at a show for $XXX, why is it more now? 

We do carry a small stock of seats for shows and events.  We offer show pricing, usually at discount as you are buying the seat ďas is.Ē  This is not to say there is anything wrong with the seat, on the contrary, these seats are often highly unique as they are stitched with one time designs, inlayed with small trimmings or discontinued materials.  We make all kinds of seats to showcase design options, and if you see one that fits your bike, GET IT!  Once we have to make you one to order, you will have to pay full price for it. 

Do you offer discounts?  Can we negotiate a price? 

Sometimes we do offer discounts, it never hurts to ask!  We have offered discounted seats in the past for some organizations, or multiple orders.  If we are having a sale of the month, it can be found on the home page of the website, so check back often as the sale changes...one month may be 15% off all Hitchhikers, the next sale may be 20% off all Dyna seats! 

Why Canít I get a King and Queen seat online?

King and Queen Seats pose a unique challenge as we have to make a pan to contour the shape of the bike and sissy bar.  It is very difficult to measure angles of the bike without having the bike in the shop.  There are instances where we have been able to make a pan, ship it to the customer, and have them try it on the bike, return ship it, making adjustments and continuing this back and forth process until the pan fits, and finally shipping the customer the finished product.  Unfortunately, this option can become quite costly as you are paying multiple shipping charges.   

Can you match my paint?  What if I send you pictures? 

Sometimes we can match paint, sometimes its close. Pictures, both of your bike and of our materials, are only as accurate as your computer monitor settings.  To be totally sure of the color you are getting, send us your address and what materials interest you, and we can send you samples of the actual material!

Why is my seat a different shape than the picture I was looking at online? 

If you are looking at a picture of a Solo Classic for example, make sure you are looking at the seat that is for your model bike.  A Softail is a drastically different shape that a Sportster and the seats are different too. 

My bike looks like this, what should I put on it? 

Seats, like all art, are beautiful in the eye of the beholder!  Use your imagination, consider your personality: are you flashy or mellow?  Do you want your seat to reflect that or contrast it?  We are more than willing to give personal opinions, but really, who cares what we think???  Itís your seat! 

Can you send me a picture of what it will look like before I order it? 

Unfortunately, this is not possible.  That would mean we have to make the seat, and send you a picture.  This puts us in the position of being stuck with a custom seat if you donít decide to follow through with your order.  It just doesnít make much sense, does it?

How can I check on the status of an order? 

At the time of your order, we will give you an approximate ship date.  The lead time depends on how many orders area ahead of yours.  If it is near your ship date, feel free to give us a call directly at the shop at 818-353-3888.  Please have your order number ready when inquiring about your status.  Also, please remember every time you call to ďcheckĒ on your seat is time we are spending NOT working on your seat!

 MOUNTING INSTRUCTIONS ALERTS FOR YOUR NEW SEAT FROM BAR ENTERPRISES:

 

     1.)     If your Harley is a Dyna model, you will find a bolt to fender for the "grab strap"  It will be necessary for you to remove this bolt in order for our seat to fit.

     2.)     If your Harley Softail is a 2000, 2001, or 2002 year and you will be using one of our Classic Solos, you will need to remove both plugs in the frame where the seat mounts on the sides.  This is where H.D. uses a spring loaded retaining bolts on the stock seat.  Your new seat will include the necessary replacement bolts and nuts to mount your new seat.

Otherwise your seat should go on just fine.  If not give us a call.
