This black diamond Biltwell Banana Seat will fit your 1986 - 2003 Harley-Davidson Sportster by simply drilling a single hole in your mudguard.
A single sheet of vacuum-formed ABS plastic forms the base of our Banana seat, and is covered with molded urethane foam. Two cover styles are available: horizontal tuck n' roll or diamond pleated. Both covers are hand stitched heavy-duty vinyl, then glued and stapled to the underside of the pan. A laser-cut and hand-polished stainless-steel bracket riveted to the rear underside of the pan mounts securely to the top of the rear fender with one supplied 5/16-18 hex bolt and stainless-steel acorn nut.
From the mouth of Biltwell: "We're reasonably confident the new Biltwell Banana seat will fit your 1986 through 2003 H-D Sportster perfectly. We qualify this statement only because we haven’t tested the Banana seat on every XL model manufactured during these production years. On the model years we DID work on, the Biltwell Banana seat looks awesome and fits even better. Of course, because this product is designed for custom, modified and garage-built motorcycles, we can't guarantee perfection in every application. However, if the frame on your '86-'03 Sporty is straight, if you haven’t modified or chopped the subframe and your rear fender is stock, the Banana seat should fit exactly like the production sample on the test mule in these photos."
** This seat requires drilling 1 smalll hole for proper installation. Fits only 86-03 Sportsters. This will not fit 04+ rubber mount or Ironhead Sportsters.
