Please let me know more detail
Hi Phil, Here is a picture of my "Doctored" seat!. Basically, I removed the lump and cut the plastic inserts off with a mini grinder. I solvent
welded them to the underside to fill the holes and used builders foam to shape up the indent on top. Finished the profile with layers
of thin foam and spray on adhesive. Covered this seat MYSELF IN REAL LEATHER! Went to a local saddlers and bought a piece of black
cowhide for £20.00,(Offcut) and moulded it round the seat. Took a bit of pulling to get it right and an air stapler is a must. I have one in the workshop, but I am pleased with the result and now, sitting back further which is good, I reckon the ride is smoother as I my weight is more over the back springs. I will post another pic of a separate seat I bought from a scrapyard for £40.00 and had it covered professionally.
Next project is Red Malossi fuel filler cover.
Nice job - wish I could be so "creative"
I would need to have a second seat just in case I screwed up the first one
Like I said, you can pick up a second hand Hump seat on eBay. I am only a retired builder, not
an upholsterer but I managed it. Here are a couple of pics of my latest job on the Scooter.
I paraphrase an old song I heard at Reading Festival in 1988.
You can step on my blue suede shoes, Man,
You can scratch my Jaguar,
You can ask my wife for kinky sex,
But, don't touch my PCX!. Chorus:- Don't touch my PCX.etc
I had a quick look for spare seats on fleabay but nothing much showing for 2016 model (unless I'm searching the wrong criteria "PCX 125 seat")
But keep up the good work and keep posting updates
2016 models don't have a hump ,do they? The latest seats have a different part number and the fixings have changed. Same on my fuel cover, the latest ones hinge the other way. Make sure you get the right bits. Cheers Arn
No they don't have the hump but that "lip" as per image is still nagging and restrictive - if you are anything above short legged you have no room to manoeuvre your arse. Although I have found riding with feet up against (see yellow arrow) to be a more relaxiing/enjoyable ride but everyone is different.
Fair Comment. I agree about the foot position. Similar to driving a car and quite comfortable when you get used to it. Nice in red! Is that yours?
Is that yours????
Just to clarify as don't want to confuse/cause misunderstanding
It's the same model/colour yes Arn but it's an image "stolen" rather than a glorious own photo
Near enough then. I only take photos with my phone these days so the professional can better it every time.
