Handmade Baldwin Seats

These seats are by far the most comfortable I’ve ever sat on. I paid right around 800.00 to have them made and now that my girl has her own ninja I plan do run a cowl on the rear and I’ll downgrade to a seargent for looks. I’d like to get at least enough to cover the seat change let’s say 400?

You know, you really have to smash the cowl in with a Sargent, too. Is that not possible with this seat? They look too comfortable to sell.

I honestly know nothing about the Sargent other than they look sportier. These things are like pillows it’s like your riding a concourse. I’m one of those guys that bought a ninja for the travel bags and the wrist relief and then makes the rest like the zx. I’ve never tried to fit a cowl with these seats so I have no idea

If you dont sell the seats, and I imagine you will, but I think you can get an OEM Kawasaki cowl to fit with that front seat. Worst case scenario like.....

Last winter I bought my 3rd Sargent seat, but this one is covered in the gripper cover material. I love it. DTX, I think it is. You can see how the cowl digs in....I have to smash it on.

I’m not even a fan of the cowl design. Why couldn’t they make one that kept with the clean wedge design? The way it curves forward gives it a fat strange look unlike the super sports

In 100% agreement on the "curves forward" dislike. The first time I saw it I thought that it defeated the purpose of a cowl's intention. At least from what I used one for "back when" to help keep my skinny flat ass in the seat while riding a wheelly. Our stock set up is actual very good at that.

The cowl sucks. The look is a whatever, but the bracket sucks too. Many have scratched paint, just putting it on. Plus, if there was any storage there, it's gone because of the bracket.

I’m almost tempted to just put a factory rear seat back on my bike to give it the sleek look again. The Baldwin is stupid comfortable. My girl said it was more comfy riding on the back of my bike than riding her own. It just lacks that streamlined look and I don’t like passengers.

I posted this in the wrong thread.sorry. This is my spare passenger seat, with a Givi box mount. It will hold damn near any box they have. I usually use the scooter sized box. Its about a helmet size. It looks silly, but the other box will hold two helmets, and is perfect for shopping..
