1977 CB550F2 seat.
« on: February 11, 2020, 06:14:31 PM »
Hi,

As part of the ongoing process to get my 1977 CB550F2 sorted, I have decided to start on the seat. The base has been sorted. The foam insert is worn and the original cover has a small tear in it. I am happy to replace the foam, unless you know anyone who can cut out , fill, and reshape the foam. Also looking for someone to repair the seat cover. Looking for recommendations.
Thanks
Bill W.

Hi Ross,

The seat is a complete original, and has just a small tear in the cover, and the foam needs sorting if not replacing. The seat base has been welded, and needs tidying. I would like to keep the original cover and get the small tear repaired. It then needs reassembling using the appropriate bits that I took off it when it I  stripped it down. If you think he can do this, I would be happy to use him.

Cheers

Bill.

Hi Bill  I think Charlie would need to see the seat first to appraise If you can bring it over we can go to see him  In the mean time i will go and talk to him I think you would have to repair and powder coat the base then he can re upholster  Ross
