custom scooter seats?

My Wife drives a Kymco Downtown 300. She really likes it and it fits her pretty well but she could use a little more room to stretch out her legs on a long ride. Does anybody know a place that modifies scooter seats? Preferably on the east coast to be able to ride to for a fitting?

Thanks Darren

I've always had good luck with just local upholstery shops.

They usually don't charge much as they're used to doing full couches and whatnot.

got new foam and leather on my elites seat for less then $50.

Check in the local motorcycle community for a motorcycle seat upholster. Anyone who does furniture should also be able to make a new cover but if you need/want modifications then one that does a lot of bike seats is your best local bet.

The local upholstery shops that I'm aware of do mostly furniture and boats. I'm more interested in somebody with experience reshaping a motorcycle seat than just recovering one.
