Recommended upholsterer to change seat padding/shape.

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by NOT4US, Aug 20, 2011.

  1. While my Z750 is being fixed I had a conversation with my other half and she tells me that the pillion seat is really uncomfortable for her and (specially after the accident) she is not confident on the bike anymore.
    So I've decided to change the seat padding and shape (for both pillion and rider, I could do myself with a seat that doesn't hurt my ass after 10 minutes).
    Pictures of what I'm intending to do below.
    My question, does anyone have any upholsterer they can recommend (preferably in Sydney)?
    And if anyone has done something similar, could you post your experience and some pics?

    This is the current seat:


    And I'm looking at getting it converted into something like this:

    That's the one I came across first while doing some research but sent them and email a few days ago and never replied. May call them on Monday to have a talk to them.
    Thanks for the tip.
