- pivot point
heavy duty, good quality would buy again!!
Includes bushing for pivot point. Super well made.
Used these on a bunch of bikes. Always function as great as they look.
Biltwell hinge is looks great and is very well built. I would definitely recommend. I will be buying one more for my project bike.
No squeaking, overall nice product.
The seat pivot is way too loose. There is a .014" difference between the shoulder bolt and the ID of the weld on pivot. This results in 1/2" movement laterally at the rear of the seat. It feels very unsafe and looks unprofessional. I had contacted Biltwell regarding what I can assume is a manufacturing issue with no help. They told me that because it falls in the fabrication parts category that the looseness all depends on how one installs it on the bike. I tried relaying to them that the looseness is a direct result of their manufacturing techniques and not how I installed it. I guess they did not get it. I will correcting the issue by either re-drilling the pivot hole, installing a bushing to re-utilize the stock shoulder bolt or drilling/reaming the pivot to -.001" below .375" for a 3/8" should bolt, drilling and re-tapping the seat bracket to 5/16-18, and turning the head of the shoulder bolt down to recess into the seat bracket. Unfortunately the pivot is welded on my motorcycle and removing the pivot and going with something else will be more work than the solutions above.
Nice bracket welded up nicely. Had a nice notch in it and for perfect to the back bone
Best for the price
Works great, easy to go install
Good looking part, delivered super quick. A little too quick considering i cant get any dang time off work to actually work on the dang thing. I mean dang, dont these work people realize how important this chopper **** is? Im sure it'll work perfectly. Maybe one day I'll be able to find out.
I like it very much
The bike pivot is sturdy, however there is a lot more play in the pivot than what I want. The back of the seat can move side-to-side +- 1/2" which is too much for me. I will try shim stock or bushing the hole for the shoulder bolt.
not to over built not to flimsy just right
I bought this seat hinge because I have broken 3 of those cheap-o universal ones you can buy for $10 less than this quality one. Save yourself the time, $$, and effort and buy this part, install and be done. I had to modify my current mount on my frame to accept this hinge, took less than an hour with minimal skills.
Nice simple hinge for custom seat mounts. Quality a good and the price is right!
