Royal Enfield Bullet ’53

Carl, a brilliant bike mechanic and restorer, asked me to restore his ’53 Royal Enfield motorcycle seat. First I wanted to add pleads and work towards a “Brat Bike Look” but Carl asked me kindly to keep it “sober” and stay as much as possible with the original. When finished, I was happy he took this decision. This bike did not need a “fancy seat”. This bike needed a seat that blended in with the rest. As if it has aways been there. Part of a beautiful original English Royal Enfield Bullet from 1953.

  • Motorbike: Royal Enfield 1953
  • Brief: Keep it simple and respect the bike’s design
  • Material: Black Leather

Lets try to make the bottom as clean as possible…

This 63 year old seats had a surprise up it’s sleeve after removing the foam…
