Guys i thought i'd share this with you. I've been working on my seat i recently bought £20 After stripping it down and repaired the damaged threads etc i had the base powder coated. It looks like a new un :D

My next step was to rechrome the seat strap end plates and replace the rivet type fittings. basically to give it that original look. I did this by usying a stainless m6 coach bolt grind and polished to shape and size, that way i will only have to use a half nut to secure it in place.

So having done all the prework prior to finally fitting the cover i'm just looking for advice etc. I have the option to take the seat assembly to a guy who can remake a cover following the original covering but unable to sort the "Honda" on the reverse of the seat. before i do that im asking if there is reputable cover supplier available on the market any one would recommend. ??

This is the seat i have currently fitted. as you my know it is not for this model but the covering is excellent.
