Description

Brat Style...no it isn't some new purse brand invented by the Kardashians or LoLo, it's a term that is widely used in Japan to describe an evolution of the custom motorcycle and actually started as the root name of a premier custom shop in Japan, bratstyle.co.jp.

Falling somewhere in between Bobber, Cafe Racer and Street Tracker, a Brat Style machine takes hues from all three and blends them into a sedate, yet potent, visual amalgamation of style and performance.

Stripped down like their Bobber brethren, Brats are usually built on small CC suspended platforms, where-as Bobbers, are more often then not, rigid. In addition Brat's are usually built to the hilt in the engine department too, which obviously lends a nod to the "Racer" portion of Cafe Racers.

The most defining characteristic of the "Brat" though most definitely has to be the low-profile two-up seat that affords the machine a long and low look quite indescribable or matched by any other machine genre.

With the capability to fit a second person on the back of the bike a "Brat" affords the rider/builder an opportunity to express creative freedom while bringing their brat with them, in style. That said, when running solo, the suspended frame, worked suspension, up-right bars and rev'y engines create something that handles like a Street Tracker. It's quite the potent combination.

All-in-all and in the end, any custom bike is a representation of what the builder wishes it to be and there really is lost time in trying to classify any one particular genre. That said, you guys kept calling us asking if we could build some "Brat Style" seats & pans; we did, and here they are!

Manufactured here at Dime City we use a 3/16" thick laser cut aluminum base pan with slotted mounting bolts for easy fitment between the frame rails of just about any machine you're pounding the pavement with. And if you don't want to go through the hassle of making up some mounts, just snag a set of four of the weld-on mounts we offer.

Taking it one step further and thinking aesthetically minded, we designed The DCC Original Brat Style seat pan to be universal yet work in harmony with our large CC rear and top loop kits. Looking for a tight visual line revealing half the top frame tube all the way around with a nice rounded rear section? Just grab one of our large CC rear loops, graft it to your frame and fit the Brat Style seat right on top. It's a perfect fit.

If that wasn't enough...we even offer it in an up-swept version to match the up-swept loop. And for those of you looking to cover your own, we also offer them in both styles in raw aluminum with no cover or padding.

Dime City Cycles, not just for Cafe Racers anymore..

Great product

This is a great seat. Well made and looks very nice. I used this with the upswept rear hoop on my KZ750 and the pair worked together perfectly. Not the softest thing in the world but who builds these bikes for comfort anyway?

Pretty sweat seat

I got this seat as a gift for my CB500, couldn't have been more stoked. The padding is more then sufficient and the look is really clean. I remember this seat posted with white stitching and a DCC tag, but thankfully mine came black on black with no tag. The fit is spot on with the frame, so that was another plus. I will point out a few things though, creating an upswept hoop is laborious so be prepared to spend a lot of time yourself doing it or spending some bills having a metal shop fabricate it. Also, the mounts are placed in an odd spot just above the battery and it seems like the rear mounts could be placed back a few inches to secure the rear better. Other then the mount placement this seat is well worth the money! I'd suggest checking out the new diamond pattern DCC offers too as it's freakin awesome.

Awesome Seat

Finally, finally someone offers a decent brat seat that doesn't require a custom order and five hundred bucks. Everything on this seat is done perfectly and professionally; seams are neat and padding is firm. I really like the mounting system they have on this seat, all you really need are a few frame mounts which are easy to fab if you have at least an angle grinder and welder, but I'm sure someone handy could rig up something which required neither. Anyways, buy this seat! You won't be disappointed.

amazing

this seat was easy to mount after i did some minor frame trimming. i have a 74 cb360 and i cut the rear finder mount and the factory seat mount after that just used some 1' balck rubberize p-clamps to mount the new seat so if your looking for and easy way to change the look of your bike this may be the seat for you but keep in mind i was planning to remove the rear fender do i had a new tail lamp ready and the factory fender is probably going to have to come off. (i also had to lower the factory battery box by simply droping the box below the mounting tabs rather than below). i love the way it looks and after a 2hr ride i didn't feel like i was riding on a rock. all and all well worth the money (especially because my old seat was kinda beat up and a local shop wanted $175 just to replace the foam and vinyl. thanks again DCC
