No new posts, just broken dreams

Sorry for the lack of posts…I’ve been trying to figure out what to do next.

As an aside, I’ve been on the hunt for an early Honda CT90. I was excited to find 4 for sale, for a very low price locally…but he sold them in less than 12 hours. I guess I’ll have to keep looking.

Seat is done

Well – kind of – just needs a coat of paste wax and it will be done.

I’m happy how it turned out, but I don’t want to make another for a long time.

Waiting on this to dry

I’m getting excited now seeing it start to come together towards a finished product.

Skirting attached to the seat pad

I double stitched it for extra strength. I’ll probably wait to dye until I have it on the seat pan.

Now I just need to figure out how to get it mounted.

Seat skirt started

Here are some pics of the leather being stretched for the skirt on the sides of the seat.

Seat padding start

Here are some random progress pics on the seat upholstery development.

Ready to stamp in some space for the padding:

Test pattern for seat

Here’s a quick test I did for the diamond stitch upholstery on the seat pan. I’m hoping the final will be a bit taller tufts.

This was using 3/8″ soft foam for the diamonds. I think I’ll move to a higher density foam.
