C&C seat

Good morning all,

I am close to pulling the trigger on a new seat from C&C.

I have the style and pattern picked.

Two types ostrich with smooth accent bands.
CVO inlay tuck with diamond stitch.

The seat will be black.

Where I am stuck is the stitch color. I donít have a good eye for this type of thing.

The bike is Olive gold.



Any thoughts or suggestion would be welcomed and appreciated.

Thanks,

Olive Stitching Would Really Tie It All Together IMO

What are the options? Like Swomack said, matching the bike would look great if that's an option.

I would go dark olive if it were my sled.

Subtle Looks Best IMO.

I've been looking at their seats too. I've been leaning towards the dark olive. One thing to consider that I've been thinking about. If you end up loving the seat, it's probably not going to match the next bike you want to put it on. If you hate the seat, the market to sell it will be small. Just my 2c

I think you'll be happy with your C&C seat. It took them 3 times to get mine right, but their customer service was good and fair.

One thing to watch out for. The C&C seat I have is the wide solo and it has a square nose instead of the rounded nose found on most other seats. If they don't get the seat pan perfectly squared off, or if the seat doesn't align properly on your bike you get this;

I returned that seat and they reworked it, but the second seat came back and it was pretty bad. However, again I want to stress that their customer service was great (talked to the owner several times) and they footed the bill back and forth from the first seat to the third. I've been happy with the 3rd seat.
