Good Morning!

Hello!

1) Can you do leather/ostrich/shark/himalayan blue balled yak skin?
a)max thickness?
b)sewing machine stitching or laced whatever thru punched holes?
c)roll pleat?
d)piping?

2) Can you do does rivet things that will mean I can snap the cover on and off?

3) Can you do the same rivet snap things in fiberglass?

4) Will you be gentle with my seat?

5) Will it come back to me infused with multiple scratch and sniff areas?

I'm likely to get upset and get myself a souped up Super Hawk.

Good luck with the project.

go,

Get some pictures, write it up and put it in the member products area. I used normal rubber padding on my race seat at Summit and I've decided that my ass needs a real seat. Show us what you can do.

It looks really good, but if I may impart some advice. I think the seat wouldn't look so bad if maybe you shortened up that rear fender. Also, the engine cover needs to be cleaned up and maybe paint either it or the chain cover to match each other? Also, the exhaust needs a change. the cables need to be rerouted. Oh, and can you shorten those bars (clubmans)?

Don't get me wrong, the bike looks great, this is just my $.02, for what that's worth!

One other thing, the lighting in your pictures is terrible, take that thing outside and let us see a picture of it in all it's glory!

Lukester,

The clubmans thing is a long drawn out affair on this list. Don't worry about it. Some people use clubmans, others use clip-ons, and others use drag bars. You may find that riding your bike with stock position foot pegs and clubman bars will soon cause a backache. Or you may be young and not worry about such things. If you wanted to use clip-ons you'd need to remove the upper fork covers.
