Meet Alligator Bob - Master Craftsman & Exotic Skin Specialist, with over 35 years experience!

Please browse through the site and check out what ADVANCED is all about.
I look forward to hearing from you.

To My New Customers,

I would like to introduce ADVANCED Custom Design to you. ADVANCED is a custom leather shop specializing in motorcycle seats and saddlebags for all brands of motorcycles. I use only the finest materials available.

Every seat on our site is custom made and one of a kind to your specifications. The seats on our site are not for sale, they are examples of what Alligator Bob has created for his customers.

One of a kind means that I have no inventory on any one design. I make each seat to order and to your specifications. So, if you see something you like on my site...give me a call and lets start creating your dream seat!

I service motorcycle dealers and shops throughout the United States and support custom shops from around the world. I also have seats and motorcycles shipped from around the world to ADVANCED for all types of custom work. I stand behind my work 100% to satisfy all my customers. You can view samples of my work in many bike magazines and shows throughout the USA.

What makes our shop different from everyone else's?
First of all look at our pictures and that pretty much gives you the answer right there. In addition we can make the complete package, (seat, tool pouch, saddlebags, duffle bags, lower dashes, windshield pouches, fringe, all are one of a kind, no reproduction). Bob gets only the best, top of the line materials, which means his products not only look good, but they will last...

We do not sell our leathers and exotic skins. We take pride in creating a high quality product and would not make money on selling our basic ingredient for any price! That's what gives you the extra edge on your custom creation...materials and craftsmanship found nowhere else.

I hope you will take the time to review this website. Send any questions or comments to me via the "Contact Us" page.

I look forward to hearing from you....
