The seat build for the Tonka build has come to an end with the leather work completed this week.

The construction was fairly simple with a fibreglass base with steel locators glassed into the base. The base consisted of 6 layers of woven mat with a polyester resin which should hold up to any big boned riders.

I then picked up a block of high density foam which I attached to the base with some contact adhesive and continued to shape it with a hack saw blade until the rough shape was completed. After that it was a flap disc on the angle grinder to smooth out all the bumps.


Sourcing some leather was fun as there were so many options but the client wanted somewhat of a tanned antique look.  I found something suitable out west and up getting a full hide which I'll be able to get a couple more seats out of.  


It follows the lines of the tank and frame and the vintage leather will age nicely over time.

Now to get it on the road!

Tank prepped and ready for paint In between non-bike related work we've managed to keep things ticking over, thanks to bike night our weekly ritual.The progress on the Blossom the SR tracker is coming along nicely with most parts …We also managed to pop out a rather large ding from the Sweet Honda tank by spotting a couple of pieces of my old CD stand, we could probably thank Spotify for that.
