This is for an XS400 I stumbled into awhile back. Just another practice seat until I get good enough to do my RD120 or similar serious builds. The seat pan was a skate board deck!
First I cut and adhere some of my foam to the pan. Then I shape it with my angle grinder (over kill much?)…Hey it works okay?
Then I upholstered it with some scrap material I had left over. Just enough to do a simple little job.
I’m improving a little with each seat. It is so much fun I can’t wait to do another one!
I may not be a world class secret agent but that doesn’t mean I can’t have my martini’s shaken, not stirred. I just read this article that challenged me to 30 days of cold showers! How could I turn down such a challenge…Mind you it is January 9th…a bit cold out. I just got done with my 3rd cold shower and must admit it is pretty awesome feeling! Think you have what it takes to be like James Bond?
My second attempt at making my first seat was a bit more successful. But I’m not satisfied yet…
