Questions...Talk to Me About Panhead Deluxe Solo Seats!!

Hi...as you can see I'm newbie, thanks for the add to the site! I've been scouring the internet for information on the changes that the panhead solo seats went through and this seems to be the best place to find out information :mrgreen:

Here goes...this seat has come from a 1950 panhead that's been totally stripped down, I'm trying to find out if it is an original seat, or a replica as there's a difference in value/cost of between $500 to $2500 depending on what it is.

I've asked a few questions already and been advised that the seat pan seems to be an original due to the size and shape but I can't find any information on the sizing or the subtle changes the seats went through to try and identify what year it could be and if in fact it is an original rather than replica.

Who knows what :mrgreen:

It appears to be a recover or a replica based on the underside, style of rivets ,the stitching and black leather strip.

Michael Paquette at Worsham castle has all the original Milsco records and info on seats. His repair and recover services are the best. 5He can identify any H-D seat.
