Seat Cover

I just replaced my factory seat cover with a Travelcade seat skin i got on E-bay, it went together well, and looks great! I am also changing my fenders and tank, as I found it was cheaper to change tins than it was to paint. Thought I would share!

That's a seat cover? Do you happen to know what the part number is, and, how is it attached to the seat? Jerry.

as near as I can tell, this is the same seat cover, I got mine on E-bay.

It is attached with staples per the directions that came with it, but I would suggest using pop rivets for instalation.

That's great to know in case we need to repair a torn seat. I wonder if there can be some sort of padding placed between the existing seat and the cover, to make the seat a bit more comfortable, escpecially for riding 2-up.
