Winter Project: Mission Accomplished!

A month and $90 later the custom seat for my AirHawk pad is done. It totally changes the look of the Sporty. The old Sundowner seat beat the hell out of the paint on the rear fender. Repaint this Spring is the next project.

Winter Project: Update

Just about got the seat pan done. Smoothed out the metal & filled out the shape with a little body mud. The mounting base plate is ready all that's needed is the mounting brackets that are on the way.

Now it's time to start practicing on sewing the custom cover.

Winter Project: Update

The shape of the seat is just about done. Today was spent smoothing out the metal and working on the small dings that are left. All I need now are the seat mount brackets that are on order.

Winter Project: Update

The SP Project is coming along. The seat is starting to take shape. I found an interesting way to smooth out the metal, a Craftsman Hammerhead cordless hammer.
