Basically I'm looking for someone to fit the cover as it's really good quality and I love the design Anyone know of...
  2. Seat cover/ recover

    Africa Twin
    I recovered my seat a couple if years ago, (one of the wemoto ones). My seat is non standard and so was a real stretch getting it on.

  8. seat

    Africa Twin
    Hi and welcome. My seat amongst others was uphlostered by GA Wells & Son. As you say its probably not worth sending it to them, you need to find somewhere near to you. Any automotive upholsterer should be able to do it. When GA Wells did mine they took the cover off. Drew a pen line taking off...
