I want a new seat

Post  ryan.moyles on Tue Apr 28 2015, 22:16

So I've been looking up and down for ideas to improve the look of the standard seat. I really don't like the big smear of black on my bike and want to add a little colour but without making the bike look tacky/chavy. Anyway I just stumbled across this interesting piece on eBay.

Sorry but Tacky. They do other seat covers on ebay.

1. ebay click me

2. ebay click me

3. ebay click me

Or other option is to get a seat hump and have it whatever colour you want.

There are places that do them but they aren't cheap and I've never seen one in the flesh.


Might be worth investigating though.

I've seen those The White One and quite like the first link, but in yellow:

My partners grandma is pretty handy with a sewing machine so might just buy some leather and design one myself.

Yes FatCat they are quite pricey. I think there's a place near me in Huddersfield that'll do it but I don't want to take out a loan to buy something that is pretty much pointless haha.

Them ones fatcat posted are lovely, my mat orderex one for his bandit. Quality is second to none but then again for £175 I would expect it to be.

That is gorgeous, I need to rip off the design and claim it as my own. Thanks!

Ah yes, I bought that off Wowie, looked awesome on my cat. Can't remember what I did with it, I know I didn't sell it with the Cat, it was too good.

There is a Polish company on Ebay that do some really great looking seat covers and good quality too for just £45-£50 and you just staple them on. I've got one on my pan now.

Here is the link for the thundercat one they do, if you message them on your order, you can choose the colour of the lettering, stitching and piping, at no extra cost!
