Modifying a seat... need some tips
I have two of these seats - the one on the bike and another that's pretty rough - the cover is shot. I'm going to set the good one aside and modify the other. The plan is to pull the cover and reshape the foam and have a local upholstery guy recover it. I'd like to stick with the OE pan - the hinge, lock, etc. But, I'd like to shorten the seat by about 4.5". This is where it I've got questions...
If I cut the pan, I lose the rounded, turned down edge at the back. My guess is that makes upholstering the seat tough. Can I just notch and bend the end to recreate that shape. Or, should I enlist the welding skills of a buddy and replace that end?
