Seat Reupholstering, Gel Memory Foam Upgrades, Foam Reshaping

Hello, I have been a member since 2011 and have been riding GS's for a while now. My main business is Harley Seats but I also specialize in reupholstering BMW, Dirt Bike and any other type of Enduro Bike seats. I offer seat reupholstering with leather, suede, carbon fiber and many other material selections. Along with adding Gel Memory Foam into the seats and reshaping foam whether you need to sit lower or need a buildup. We work out of our shop in Saint Louis Missouri. If you are local you are welcome to stop on by...or if you are out of town or in another country we can handle it thru the mail. Our main business is on the internet and we service our customers all over the global.

I work a lot with the Gateway BMW Dealership reupholstering seats and riding with them..in Saint Louis MO.

Are you having slipping problems on your seat when you accelerate? If so we can suggest suede leather to help with that...

I'll ask a few questions before someone else does. What are your prices for a dualsport/dirt bike (all vinyl, half vinyl/suede), and what are your turn around times? It's a tough market to break into around this crowd with Renazco, seat concepts, guts, etc.. But a lot of us are turned off by either getting a cover and doing it ourselves or waiting up to 6 months for a fancy Renazco (who makes fantastic DS seats). If you could provide a slightly cheaper seat or faster turn around, along with comparable quality, you'll definitely get plenty of business around these parts. . It may help to slap up some more (and closer) pics of your DS seats since I just happen to be in the market for my XR650R. Good luck!

At the moment it would take about 2 weeks. A leather and vinyl combo would be between 250.00 and 350.00 or so depending on how much foam reshaping you are after. You prolly want your seat made wider correct?

Wink Thread Information for Reupholstering Seats

We like to use a heavier thread when reupholstering customers seats. Many upholster shops are limited to a smaller diameter thread due to the machines they use, but since we specialize in about every type of 2 wheeled seat we are able to use a heavier duty thread for durability and nice contrast. Below are some pictures...

Thanks everyone for taking the time to read this thread.
