Le Pera Seats

How would you guys rate Le Pera Seats compared to more of the notable brands like Corbin, Saddleman, Mean city cycles etc, daddy long legs? I am 6'00 and 250 lbs. Don't care about passengers just want to look cool and ride long distances without my damn back hurting like on my CBR1000 which kills me after an hour.

Lepera has been around 40 years so they know how to make seats.. I have a Maverick and love it.. As far as a seat that both looks cool and can rack up the miles good luck most seats are built for one or the other not both..

I have had a few different LePera seats on a few different bikes, great styling and the comfort isn't horrible.
I have a like new DDL Villain for sale (shameless plug) if interested. Absolutely nothing wrong with it! I wanted that low stretched out feeling and it put me there but a 5'9" with a 30" inseam...it was a bit to long.
Anyways check it out! Good luck on your search!

I highly recommend LePera. I have a Monterey solo custom in leather & gel. Have posted previous threads with detailed reviews. IMO LePera is much better than Corbin.

Got a Lepera on my Low rider. It's been on there since the mid 90s. Still looks new.

I had a Le Pera solo on one of my scooters, It worked great for me. I'd buy another one if I were in the market.

I have a LePera Sorrento with about 25k on it and it looks and rides like new. I highly recommend LePera saddles as well as Corbin, I put about 50k on that seat.

I have a LePera Maverick Stitched with Backrest on my 2012 Custom and love it.
I couldn't even tell that it wasn't leather when I took it out of the box.
I got a smoking deal on eBay from Eastern Performance.
If you decide on a LePera give eBay a try you may get lucky like me.
