I don’t like the seat on this bike. My project seat has one small tear and due to the metal pan with point fabric attachment, recovering will be $200-$250. I was planning on going with tan or brown to compliment my Burgandy or dark green paint scheme, but for $250, I am not thrilled with the look of this seat. The frame attachment point and style of seat has me challenged to find a substitute that does not require a bunch of mounting fabrication. Has anyone over the years replaced theirs or among the thousands of MC seats any thoughts?


Thanks

You probably can get a cushion dude to do it. If you want to fix that one for $15, it can be done easily with a little drywall mesh and brush on electrical tape.
 
Maybe something like this? You could drill into the mounting plate where you need to bolt it down.
