Which is the best seat cover to get that looks original for the 1980 GL1100, I have a good base but the covers shot?

Hartco make them, and if you fit them right they look real good.

I got 1 from Motorcycle Seat Covers by B & H Specialties
Fit perfectly and looked exactly like the original except it did not have the Honda logo on the back.

After market seat covers are the cheapest and depending on your foam its a good idea and if you wanted you could add a gel pad. But if you want cut down or added to your seat you'll need to have a cover made.

Thank you. It's hand sewn out of leather. Not on a machine but with an awl. Took me an entire winter which in Wisconsin is 5 months long. I took the old cover off and cut it aprt to use as a pattern.

I have a travelcade seat cover. Paid $40 + shipping 2 years ago. Check EBAY for replacement covers. Usually under $60.
