What did Saddlemen say when you called? Will they not sell you one?

If you buy just the skin, in order to do it yourself, ( to save some $ perhaps ? )
you will still have old foam, and such , underneath....it may look better, but would sill be uncomfortable.

A quality upholstery shop that handles boat / skidoo / motorcycle / and car seats .... could easily make you a new cover ...
I would get him to add a gel insert, new top foam, and a bit of custom decor on the seat itself .

I have seen all sorts of cool seats at Kids Hospital runs, on Harleys, Wings , and Victory machines .
When I ask " Where did you buy that ? " I often get the answer that its custom made .
