Looking for a specific Suzuki GS1000 seat

I am trying to find out who manufactures a particular seat for a GS1000. Here is a link to the article featuring a GS with the seat in question http://www.vintagemotorcyclesonline....-suzuki-gs1000 (sorry, not too sure how to post pictures). It is for my dad's bike, He's dead set on finding a seat like this, but is unable to determine who makes it, or if it was custom built etc. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

First right click the picture in question. Copy Image URL.

Then back here start a message and click the little yellow icon with the mountains and the black sun on it...

Paste your URL in the box that opens.


Submit!!

A new one is expensive. I have seen new covers for cheaper, and perhaps you could take the stock pan and foam to an upholstery shop, have them re-shape the seat and put on the Giuliari cover.

Here is a cover on Ebay.

I discovered a few years ago that Sargent will make you just about any seat you want, as long as you can supply them with photos, specifications, and enough cash. I wanted a seat that had the same lines as stock, but with a different upper cover material and better foam. They made this on the stock seat base. I forget how much it cost...



I'm sure they could make something that looks close to that Guiliari shown above.
