Seat question

Postby Breiber » Tue Apr 12, 2016 11:01 am



I picked up a new to me '84 Aspencade and 1 of the projects will be seat repair. I love the seat that is on it but I suspect that it might not be stock. It certainly looks different then all the pics I've seen and removal will require me to take the trunk off. It does have a goldwing logo on it but my gut says it isn't stock. Does anyone know what it is. This will help my search for a replacement cover.

Cheers,

Brian

Looks like a GL1200 seat to me. Almost like my 85 GL1200A. I think someone makes replacement covers. Seen some write ups on this site. Once you get it off look on the underside. If anyone else made the cover they will be proud to put there name tag on it. Corbin,Sargent,Russell to name a few.

That seat does look like an aftermarket version. The stock OEM seat does not require the rear trunk to remove. The passenger portion is narrower and does not come up at the back.

There is a company in Ontario, Canada that has replacement seat covers for stock OEM seats:

These black replacement seat covers are made to exact dimensions to insure a perfect fit and easy installation for the Do-it-yourselfer. The covers are double stitched with welt cord. The top side is stitched with 1/2" foam, the sides are laminated with 1/4/"foam. These covers are as close as you can get to the original using stitching for the special effects instead of the factory heat sealing

I see now, you are right. That maybe a Russell Day Long?

I was thinking saddlemen. Hopefully when I take it off I'll be able to figure it out
