Does anyone make sheepskin seat covers for solo seats. I've seen a few wartime photos of them on WLAs. They would have been private puchase. I fellow even told me his father had a bearskin seat cover on his WLA.

The reason I am looking for one is the seam in my jeans is marring the leather on my saddle. I want to protect the leather.
This one is from the late 40's

Beware of Corbin-Gentry sheepskin covers offered through V-TWIN.

After ordering several and returning them, I found that none would ever fit over anything but a bare pan and maybe a Kotex.
One even had ball-point pen instructions for sewing written all over the insides, as if a training aid for temporary employees.

I got one years ago from a guy from New Zealand that was great quality. I will look to see if I still have his card. I remember that it said "just passing through" and he was in sturgis in 90 when I got it. It was also lambs skin instead of an adult sheep
