I had this one made locally using my seat pan. About the same comfort wise but I was looking to lose the plastic cowl. Had the hump moved about an inch forward. Cost me $190. Sorry about the pic, only one I can find at the moment.

Just had this made. Memory foam and gel seat with all leather upholstery. 2 Tone. The seat was a t100 seat and the same height was maintained and a slightly hump added for the passenger area. Came out nice. Lot more comfortable than stock plank.

They'll do anything you want within reason. Supply a pan.

It wasn't going to be cheap, but they use the very best materials and hand make each saddle to your body dimensions, and preferred riding position.

I ultimately decided not to do it for several reasons... not the least of which was cost. So if you're wanting a good, inexpensive stock Bonnie seat to have reupholstered, shoot me a PM. I have one.

I like the looks of this one.

Rumor around this house has it that I am getting the brown leather version of this seat for Christmas. Photos will follow!

The trouble with trouble is that it started out as fun.

Currently Triumph-less. A '15 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V and a '11 Yamaha FZ8.
