    Hello,

    My 1976 R100/7 seat is starting to tear, which means in the morning on my ride to work, my ass gets wet. Not cool.

    I've seen no replacement seats on ebay, and a decent looking replacement cover , but I'm never sure of the quality of such things.

    Here is a picture of the seat that I have on mine, this is the cover that's on it, and the style I want. I'll pay good money for a NOS seat if I can get some years out of it. A new cover will suffice if seats cost $300+ like the one I currently see on ebay.

    Thank you!!

    I've been contemplating the seat cover you linked from eBay. I like the idea of added foam, and it looks to be good quality (based on the photos and seller reviews). I just haven't pulled the trigger since I'm debating a solo seat, and my cover really isn't that bad.

    Report back if you pull the trigger on it, I'd love an actual review!

    i purchased a couple of honda seat covers from these guys awhile back and they were great quality for the price and have worked out quite well with no issues or problems. they both fit perfectly.

    I have one of those on my 100/7. The covers fine but the foam is shot. It was a pain to fit and to be honest I didn't do a great job. I'm going for a complete Siebenrock replacement seat http://shop.siebenrock.com/Seats/Seats-7:::64_67.html

    Siebenrock do replacement foam and covers , which work out at around half the price of a new seat if you fit it yourself.

    I recently bought them for my G/S PD.

    They are, as claimed , an improved remake of the original - the foam seems to be dual density with a nice soft layer over a firmer base, and the covers are made from a softer ,almost rubbery, resilient material , fit the foam perfectly without heating and a lot of stretching, and are much less slippery than OEM.

    Result is a seat more comfortable than the one it replaced + an Airhawk, and it looks good too - everybuddy who knows it is new comments on how good it looks, although I think the red color has something to do with
    that - a black Corbin look alike just doesnt cut it on a Dakar !

    Done few Motobins and Comboguy[ EBAY] covers and they are good too, if your foam is good you will probably be happy with either.
