   New Seat !

I have recovered the seat with a Travelcade seat cover which came with new molded foam.  I had to strip off the old seat cover and foam, and stretch the new cover over the steel seat base.  It looked kind of plain, so I also studded the seat edge to match the saddle bags.


Travelcade Double Bucket Seat installed and Studded
