How I made a seat for my Bobber - September 2, 2008, 11:39 AM

This seat is for this bike. New Project bike -- Kawi 305 baby

I started with a 16g piece of sheet metal from Lowes. I made a cardboard template from the bike, then traced it on the sheet metal, cut it out. Then i drew lines on the sheet metal where i needed to bend it and i wrote the degree of bend i needed so i wouldn't mess up.



The i put it in my vise with a solid steel bar and used a rubber mallet to bend it. You can use a peice of 2x4 to help out and i used a regular hammer to make it a very fine bend.


All bent over


Bend #2


Pan in place


I used high quality carpet padding i got form Lowes. It's cheap and stiff. I glued them together with spray adhesive. I used 3 layers to get up to the top of the lip, then one final layer over the whole thing.


I drilled some holes into the paddign to make it a little less stiff. This give the padding some volume to fill when you sit on it so it becomes less firm.


I used a sanding disk on my angle grinder to shave off the padding and make it nice and round.



In place bitches. Covering it is the hard part for me. It will prolly look like shit but i'll try it.


Happy building.
