The Americano is Saddlemen’s unique take on the classic café racing seat and is available for Harley-Davidson Sportster models from 1979-present, with applications for both the peanut or large classic fuel tanks. The Americano was designed from the bike up to fuse nostalgic styling with modern comfort technology for the ultimate Sportster upgrade.

The marine-grade SaddleHyde™ covers the progressive density foam and a SaddleGel™ top layer for the perfect marriage of element-resistant durability and rider-focused comfort. The seating area and rear hump was shaped to complement the bike’s lines and provide long-lasting rider comfort, while the seat pan was painstakingly matched to the bike for a perfect fit. The easy bolt-on design means no other hardware is necessary for installation.
