First of all piece both seats together,I used 5mm perspex.




This is the finished job.



And on the bike,just need to take ot out out now,when the weather permits to get rid of the creases.Total cost £5.99 for 1mtr of faux vinyl,flameproof.A cheap way to get a one piece seat.

Mainly just chopped most of it away,to give a better shape,also the back,it is a lot thinner,I dont mind that for I dont sit on the back.Trouble is with having the detachable panniers you need the back seat on.

have just made this bracket,have welded a nut to the back in order to place a bolt through the pannier into the bracket,to make it harder for people to steal them .[img:b819]http://www.suzuki800.com/[/img]

Thats very clever alfie, you are very inspirational on this forum

The only thing i would say is that if you got one single piece of very thin seat foam and covered the whole seat with it before adding the cover, it would give a slightly smoother finish I think. Either way its a very clever idea

Cheers lads thats the good thing about this forum,there are always good remarks and more tips forthcoming,I will look into the thin layer of foam or backing to try and smooth things out a bit.
