It's been so long I doubt anyone remembers this project. Home repairs,another bike project,you've heard it all before. I'm back on it now. I've been gifted a used electric oven,and I plan to pick up a powder coating kit from HF. I can get set up for what it'll cost the local coater to JUST do my handlebars,$65. Fork lowers $30 each...you see why I'm doing my own.

I apologize. Early retirement was a bad idea. I'm back on track now. upholsterer quoted $225 to cover my work in vinyl,does that sound reasonable?

I think very reasonable if he is well thought of. When I covered my 83 Gl100 seat it cost me $150.00 US for a good grade cover and then I had to do all the work myself. Yours is a custom job so I am thinking the price quote is in line.

He has it,told him no hurry. He liked what I had done,which was a relief. I hope the finished seat will complement the bikes lines. The seat base was fiberglassed right on the frame for a close fit,which explains the " scalloped" sides.

the proper way to do a seat on a goldwing. Not just strapping a Triumph Triple seat on.

Not so sure Eric. She's off in a freightliner 3 months at a time,leaving me with 2 horses,2 dogs,a million cats,2 lizards,2 aquariums to tend,and took her daughter with her. I am the Zookeeper,ku ku kachu. See why I've had little bike time? It's a conspiracy,I say.
