Seat repair

Postby radiohead9999 » Fri Jun 12, 2020 3:24 pm

I just had my R1200s bike seat re-upholstered (it had a tear along the side), it was £30. i am really pleased with it and it's soooo comfy :-). It was fro m a place called Auto Trimming in Dormanstown, near Redcar. I'm not sure if he does mail-order, I should have asked. I thought it was a really reasonable price. Any thoughts?

Looking good and £30 sounds a pretty reasonable price. Do they offer additional services like reshaping the seat or putting in gel inserts for greater comfort?
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Hi Paul,

The guy is a biker, so i found out. He asked me how far forward I sat and he added extra padding, but not enough to make the seat look odd, so yes, they do. I am not sure about gel, but i am sure he would try to do that, as he was very helpful. I have no affiliation, my nephew recommended him.

Cheers

Looks good and it is a good price. My two seats cost £70 although he changed the profile and added some colour to the passenger seat.

That sounds good for both seats, would you mind posting a photo? It would be great to see how it looked?

Just added the white band to match the bike and changed the foam in the front seat to make it more comfortable.
