Rich Phillips Cycles

Built up to a standard

We specialize in making one off as well as semi custom production motorcycle seats and leather saddle bags as well as some aluminum panniers that will soon be available for late model Sportsters. We are also involved in reshaping and custom covering touring bike seats as well and utilizing our own ergonomic shaped visco elastic “BUM HUG” gel pads


The idea and style behind my leather work harkens back to an era when things were made of cast iron, canvas, solid woods, and leather throughout. When things were meant to last, and they were done the old fashioned way. My items are made in a shop that smells of rich leather filled with sewing machines and machine tools that come from an era when computers were still science fiction. The shop is littered with old parts, new parts ancient motorcycles and some new ones. I have built seats for bikes such as Harley Davidson, Triumph, Bmw, Ducati, Husqvarna, Honda, Yamaha, Indian, and just about everything in between. I currently own a 62 Panhead chopper, a 97 Sportster, the Early Bird, a 2009 BMW 1200gsa, and a 2011 Husqvarna te449. I am currently racing Hare scrambles on the Husky. I started doing upholstery at age 14 and as of writing this I turned 35 yesterday. Along with doing motorcycle oriented leather I have also started doing high end purses. I was always a little intimidated by doing them because of their intricate nature. But I always want to be learning new things and challenging myself to develop my skills. I am currently making one for my wife out of alligator hide. I will be adding new items here and there. I have purses that are complete as well as brief cases. If you are interested in one immediately give us a call.
