    I bought an old seat with a slight tear in it for £15 to be shipped direct to the upholsterer itro £5 postage to www.elsemade.com to get re-foamed in double or triple (Had a gel seat in past and left it on old VTR when sold..as was gonna buy a Blade..long story) gonna try foam, prob black seat with maybe basket weave effect as previous one, red piping and red VTR logo on back of rider seat ( to be finalised) and the guys can get a little 'lift' at front for 'protection' against the tank.lol... So, when done, and back, and one bike, as getting both bikes done, will upload photos.. Apparently Martin Veck had his done and the guy comes highly recommended although, get in the queue as he's got around a 3 week lead time atm. :-) You can pretty much design your own seat..

    • photos Jeff Mushty Whitham?? I've emailed him and sent him photos of the bikes and also sent a photo of my old seat on my VTR which was a basket weave type corbin gel seat..

    • That is nice I thought about Red seat but don't want it to get grubby looking too quickly so gonna opt for Black seat, red piping prob and RED VTR logo so it stands out more on the red, but prob plump for silver piping for dave on a black seat and not sure whether he wants RED VTR logo or Silver.... hummmm...My old gel seat was super comfy mind, we did 1200 miles in 4 days from Scotland to Swansea to ride round Hay on Wye wit hsome of the forum guys incl Neil Ledgerwood and my back was killing when I got home but my ass was super comfy.. Dave swore then he had to have one lol.. that was 3 yrs ago so i think he has well earned one by now bless,all that work he does on the bikes!

    • We too, need the seat cowel to fit on the rear, something I couldn't do with the gel seat cos when I bought it off an ex forum member, it was done front and back.. expensive, but worth it..lol..

    • It is comfy and the cowl is a tight fit, but managed to get it on.

    • You have a yellow bike? so the red would stand out on it as my old one has red piping..

    • Did you get the rear seat super foamed up? i need to be able to get my seat cover on..

    • I thought your bike was yellow? why did i think that? Red wit the black looks good

    • It sure does. Best combo.lol
