Seat retrimmed

Finally got my seatback from the trimmers, was no rush as the weather is pants.
Will put it all back together, but here it is for now.
Also an image in my Garage tab.

Looks great. Like the engraving!
Did they change anything like padding, etc? Or left it standard?

Love it! I'm curious about the answer to eisen77's question too. Same padding underneath, or did you switch it up and go with a gel insert or something?

The padding was stock as I have no issues with the original comfort.
Here is the finished article, the seat pan is all my own work on the original pan.

Why all the large holes?

My styling for the bike will be as the name suggests, heading down the old aircraft bomber route, the holes are called lightening holes, because they remove excess material (weight) and still maintain strength, very common in aeroplanes and many racing cars. the link below is a loose idea of my seat.

The rest of the bike will follow the theme but slowly, fenders/gaurds will be next.

The base of the seat is still there, you can see it through the holes. Here in the UK keeping cool is the only way to be
