I have an '82 with the stock seat. It has been recovered with a little new foam installed about a year ago. Is there an upholstery shop or an after-market seat that is an improvement over the stock for the 1982 GL1100?
I also replaced my 87 seat with a JC Whitney (Saddlemen) seat with built-in backrest a few years ago and works great. People might not know this but Saddlemen does custom work too. I went to their web site, called them and in a week, I had new arm rest covers and a new trunk backrest cover that's an exact match to my seat. Great people to deal with and great service.
Hello folks. I just bought a used Diamond Boat Seats seat for my 82A. I picked it up on eBay. I have not put that many miles on it yet, but the ones I have put on it, I noticed a difference right away. this seat you set in, not on, if that makes any sense. I think I will really like it come spring time. I only have one issue with it, the tongue is not long enough :sadguy:to use the fartherest back position. the tongue slips out of the slot. I will look into modifying it over the winter.
