Problems problems. About two weeks ago i did bring my seatpan to upholsterer and we had good chat how i want to saddle look like and when i can get it. Now this guy is disappeared. ??? Now answer on phone or e mail. I did some detective job on the internet and now i know where he lives. I am planning to go see if he is there. :evil:

Looks like you found the upholsterer, or is that a different saddle?

Just think of that wiring as a video game, get it wrong and something blows up! Or maybe catches on fire! Just (sort of) kidding. Take your time and study the large format wiring diagrams and "all will be made clear". I like the seat.
Bikes at present:
80 GL1100 Interstate: Now a Cafe Racer called DRAGON WING.
81 GL1100 collecting dust with about 300,000 miles, known as BLACK BEAUTY
2008 (I think) GL1800 Nice bike but as exciting as the family sedan!
76 GL1100 yes, 1100 with 1000 heads and cams, being customized
A fleet of parts bikes awaiting resuscitation or customization or abandonment :IDTS:
