Anyone in need of there seats re-trimming


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, 

I've had a passion for bikes since a very young age all types and shapes, I've done various restorations to a few close family members bringing there ripped tired seats back to life. I would like to ask peoples opinion, if having a custom design seat is something the fellow bike community would like.

 

Thanks guys 

Ryan

After all if you have to live in Ull what else can you look forward to apart from food.

Sorry if I misunderstood.

The bikes I had in the 70's 80's always ended up with ripped seats, they seem to be much more durable these days, my GSX600F still has original seat with no rips or tears (18 years and 50,000 miles)

These days It seems to bemore common to modify seats than repairs.

There seems to be a lot of riders who want to reduce seat height, one way is to mod the seat, althouugh suspensin ods seem to be the more common route.

Are you looking at doing seat recovering as a sdie business?

to be fair yes i am i work as a classic car specialist in the day which is where i learned how to do it so ive seen a lot of restorations of classic cars but not really a huge fans of cars there okay but i find it boring so i decided to look into this as well as some other things to see if its something people would have. i can custom design seats or make as original as possible its all down to the recipient.
