Cool My New Seat is Finished

My stock Versys seat is now stuffed & recovered after the crash. It's very comfortable just sitting on it, but I'll see about long runs after I'm riding again. It's very well done to me too. I had it stuffed with memory foam and covered with a high grade marine vinyl. The shop owner said the stock stuff is cheap-o stuff and what I've on there now is much better. There's some cushioning 'round the corners too. I think I'll like it. Here's some shots:











I have nothing to do with the upholsterer other than being a satisfied customer, but if you don't have one in your area I can surely recommend this shop.

How much does it cost to have a local upholsterer do it?

He ordered the foam, formed it, and covered the seat for $150

memory foam...a god send!

You cannot beat memory foam. It is used for people in wheel chairs.
I have had several seats redone with it....wonderful!!

Looks comfy ..........like a mini - sofa , when you have one too many guests over for the superbowl you can use it as emergency seating .
