Vespa Scooter Seat

Most of our seat covers are fabricated for motorcycles and the occasional watercraft, but we do plenty of scooters, especially when the weather turns nice.

Scooters are becoming more and more popular in Seattle; they’re convenient, easy to park and inexpensive to operate.

While it’s hard to improve upon the classic look of an Italian Vespa, some owners take the opportunity to personalize their Vespa with a custom made seat cover.

Here’a a great example of how something as simple and inexpensive as diamond stitching can transform a plain vinyl seat into something stylish and unique.

Saving Botched Motorcycle Seat

You’re probably thinking we doctored these snapshots. It’s true, we did Photoshop a carpenter’s square over two of them, but only to prove a point. In some places this thing (first two pics) could pass for abstract art, but nobody’d ever mistake it for a superbly crafted motorcycle seat cover. One of our competitors built it. What’s worse, they charged the customer for the lousy work.

Our job was to fix the other guy’s mistake. The seat face was still in pretty good shape, so we salvaged what we could. Unfortunately, the sides were too badly botched to reuse. Instead of reprising the waffle stitch design, the owner wanted to try something different — wrapping the sides and rear in plain tan leather.

As you can see, the seat repair turned out great. But, the bike owner learned an expensive lesson: if you want something done the right way, bring it to us.
