Cover for Backrest Pad?
« on: February 01, 2015, 12:46:22 pm »
I have a backrest mounted on my 2002 Concours. I originally installed it so my wife would go for an occasional ride with me, but now that it's been on for a season I find that it's useful for securing items to the back seat.

The only thing I don't like is the material covering the pad.  It appears to be a cheap shiny vinyl material with several horizontal seams. I was hoping to get it recovered with a material that would look very simar to the stock seat.  However, my local seat upholstery guy says that he's never seen material like this.  He can recover it using some non-shiny material that he has in stock, but I'd really like it to match the seat.

Does anyone know where he (or I) might get some of this material?  My only though was to
find another original seat and scavenge part of the covering. However, this seems like it would not be cost effective.

Suggestions?
