Mac's fits, builds and repairs motorcycle seats. We also custom-manufacture motorcycle seats to your specifications. Cafe to cruiser, sport bike to dirt, touring to classic, we do it all. We build the best custom motorcycle seats, seat foam and gel pads!
When a motorcycle seat doesn't fit right, it can ruin your day. What looked and felt good in the showroom can turn into a torture device an hour into your Sunday ride.
Every Japanese street bike, chopper, sport bike, dirt bike, Harley, enduro, streetfighter and scrambler has its own distinctive look and feel. One thing they have in common — the original seat rarely fits the rider. They rarely fit, because OEM motorcycle seats are never manufactured for you. They're made to fit an "average" body.
The solution? A custom-fitted seat from Mac's Upholstery.
We fabricate motorcycle seats to fit your body. We lower, narrow or widen your seat so everything feels just right. We fabricate and install special polymer gel seat pads to maximize your comfort.
In addition to seats for motorcycles, we also custom-fit seats and gel pads for ATVs, scooters, trikes, bicycles, race cars, riding mowers, trucks, cars, snowmobiles, helm seats, go-karts, wheelchairs, fork lifts, office furniture, equestrians, mattresses, floors and personal seats for sporting events.
We discourage bikers from buying off-the-shelf gel pads such as Butt Buffers. In our opinion, these one-size-fits-all gel pads for motorcycles are a waste of money. They're not designed for your body or your bike. They may slightly improve your ride, but they don't begin to match the comfort of our custom-fit motorcycle seat gel pads.
Our custom-designed motorcycle gel pads & cushions are fabricated from sheets of a special polymer created for the medical field. This ultra-soft, shock absorbing material was invented more than 30 years ago to prevent pressure sores in patients confined to a bed or wheelchair.
While originally created with medical applications in mind, the shock absorbing properties of this polymer are perfect for dozens of other products. It's used in gun recoil pads for hunters and cops. It's also used to manufacture jackhammer gloves, race car seats, and pads for injured horses. Remember Danny DeVito’s penguin suit in the movie "Batman Returns"? It was made from the same medical polymer we use to fabricate our custom motorcycle gel pads and gel seat pads.
This soft gel makes the ride smoother by decreasing pressure points and increasing blood flow throughout your hips, butt and legs. Our special medical polymer is stable and cool — far better than an off-the-shelf silicone pad, which can generate and hold heat during the summer. Our motorcycle seat gel pads are the best!
A custom motorcycle seat from Mac's not only fits your body, it fits your style — you select the cover, stitching and trim. And the sky's the limit! We can make it look any way you want. We carry a wide variety of studs and conchos. Custom embroidery is also available for a truly unique look. Click here to view a slideshow of selected seats.
Your design choices are truly awesome. We stock everything from durable, marine-grade vinyl to leather to exotic materials such as alligator, stingray and ostrich. Many come in wide variety of textures and colors.
This set of before & after pictures (below) illustrates our quality craftsmanship. The top three snapshots show a damaged motorcycle seat literally held together with duct tape. It's totally trashed! By the time we're finished repairing it, the seat not only looks brand new, it fits ;like a glove! Count on Mac's to deliver unsurpassed craftsmanship. We're proud of our work and it shows!
