Looking for a seat, CMW help!
« on: November 12, 2007, 07:33:11 PM »
I'm looking for the seat on the front cover of the CMW catalog, it is also featured in a lot of RE ads. It's a dual seat with white piping running along the entire top of the seat. Theres one in the catalog and in the online store which looks similar, but it's not the same.

Anyone?

I also liked the looks of that seat. It looks like a genuine leather seat you used to see on old bikes in UK.

Hey, that looks like my custom made seat, except for that little flip on the back. Mine is straight. Had the back part of the seat cut to be level with the front, looks real good. Cost $60 at the upholstery shop......Dew.
If it hurts, you're not dead yet!!!!!

Thats my bike, yes the seat is a stock pan that i had re-shaped and re-upholstered. I gave the guy pics of a BSA goldstar seat and told him i wanted something like that with a little bump on the back. What you see is what he gave me. Im happy with it. Think it cost me about $120.00 about 5 years ago but i payed top dollar to get it back fast, im sure you can find a good worker to do it for less.

Hope this helps

Glad to hear it, I was going to ask why you had sunglasses on at night. Are those ace bars or clip ons? If they're the ace bars, could you tell me if they bump the tank at all?

cheers

They are Tomaselli fully adjustable race bars. They would hit the tank (where i have them set) but i have a steering damper that i have collared to stop them from going to full lock.
