Evolution of the Stryker Low Back Bomber seats.

Many people do not know when or why The Stryker Bomber seat came about. Nearly 20 years ago Stryker was producing seats and interior  Kit's for aftermarket vehicle Manufactures and parts distributors. One seat in production was the " King Cobra" Seat. This seat was being sold for replicas such as Shelby Cobra's, GT 40's and Daytona Coupes.

As a fluke, Stryker was in the process of building a traditional interior for a local customers 1930 Model A 3 window, when poof, an epiphany came. One of the technicians put a " King Cobra" seat in the car to move it. As customers & employees walked by, they commented on how cool the seat looked.

The Seats looked great however when sitting in the Hot Rod it was uncomfortable . The sides were to tall and had a heavy rake that pushed the driver to far forward. So after quite a bit of field testing and R&D the seats were modified over and over and over, until the version you see today. 

This is a picture of one of the original Low Back Bucket "King Cobra" Seats.

From the photo above you can see the drastic rake and lower bolster with higher sides. The photo shown below was the first seats named The  BAB ( Bad Ass Bomber Seat) .

As you can see (above) the seats had less of a rake with a higher bolster and lower sides. These worked well however SHR was in the middle of building a custom set of " Retro Bomber " Seats shown below. They were taken to a car show and had an incredible response.
