Default Re: Bicycle Seat

I was like you. I couldn't find a comfy seat. My bony bottom just wasn't meant for bicycle seats so I made my own.
If you have some metal fabrication skills it's not hard. I made the frame then a 1/2" plywood foundation and added 6" of motorcycle foam (high density) and a half yard of vinyl. I'm not much of a seamstress and the wife's sewing machine wouldn't take the think material so I ended up hand stitching the cover. It's not too professional looking but it's one soft ride.
