Vintage Motorcycle SEAT


Recommended Posts

Having nearly finished my 16h resto, i'm looking at my original seat, the frame is fine, and to be fair the black rexine seat cover is ok, i'd rather keep the original................but...............

the round metal studs and the spring clips that hold the cover to the frame are either rusted away or very poor,


anyone know a sorce of replacement clips and studs ?

Try RK Leighton......they may supply spares....? You can easily make the clips from thin steel or brass strip, and the bifurcated (split) rivets can be found on Ebay for around £2.50 for a hundred-odd......


I'm lucky enough to have original NOS covers on my bikes.......plus pillion seats too....can't beat 'em !! :-D
