I Have a Chance To By A Seat New Cloth Upholstered For My 84 Aspy!

Is This Rare Or Have You all Seen This Before?

What's Ya'll Think about This Purchase? Would It look Goofy?

I Would appreciate You Guy's Opinion



Thanks James

I know Diamond uses a cloth for the seat portion and I've seen several cloth seats on Wings. A little Scotchgard and you should be fine.

Assuming the color doesn't look funky on the bike.

Here's my 1500 with a Hartco seat with a velour cover. I think it looks great.

I wouldn't worry about the post count. With as many members as we have, there are going to be a lot of them that aren't comfortable yet with getting into the posting regimen.

As for my opinion, I happen to like the look and the feel, of a cloth velour seat. I have a Diamond seat left over from my gl1500 with the wineberry color and the Eagle stitched into the backrests. To me, it looked great. To my rump, it felt great!

Only downside to me was if it got wet, it took a while to dry it out. Even so, a few damp times did not ever seem to have any negative effects.

I always kept a full bike cover in the saddlebags, and if the bike was parked, the full cover went on. That kept the goodies covered from rain and sun.

My opinion is thus.

If you like it buy it.

I wouldn't like it because cloth seat covers get wet, and stay that way whereas vinyl and leather can be mopped off with a towel.

Yes, but unlike what is mentioned above they dry off mostly with a towel and quickly dry when it's no longer raining. I also treat mine a couple times a year with Scotchguard. If it's wet enough that the seat is getting wet, I'm wearing rain gear anyway. :action: Here in the Pacific NorthWET we get a bit of rain too. :dude:
