That's not a bad price for a whole seat Frank. I am sure you've seen that one on Ebay recently, stock new sold for USD 800.
I suppose you get the fiberglass base, and all the rest aftermarket. All these parts are sold on Ebay separate. Is this by the same guy?
The place where I'm at is a bit different - not wanting a whole seat done. I have an old original base, already painted. I also already bought the aftermarket cover from Ebay (maybe 1 year ago?). I also already have the foam - it came with the shell, it was a touring seat from an early model. In a bad shape, so the cover was an immediate toss.
What I've done is I shaved about an inch or so from the rider area - I want a seat a bit lower than the stock original I have, so I can always put both my feet flat on the ground.
So, I have all the parts already here, except that one buckle.
I was going to do all by myself, but a local shop said they can put it together for me for CAD $70 - 90. I might give it a go, but need those two buckles in order.
