I broke my wife's sewing machine trying to stitch that thing up. I finally finished the job with a hand stitcher. I found some 4" foam at a upholstery supply place here in Denver they called 'motorcycle foam', very high density. It is a comfy ride, especially for my skinny, no padding butt. I'm building another one with a little fiberglass tail end on it, more like what you'd see on a real cafe racer. I'll have someone do the sewing for me on that one.
