Cool M/C Seat Upholstery

I need to get my seats recovered on my motorcycle, is there anyone on the NW side of town that you can recommend? I'll take the seats off the bike and deliver them that way.

Looking to go simple black on front and back, with no grab handle on the rear. I may have an extra 1/2 inch of padding added to the front seat as well.

Any recommendations? Anyone do this out of your garage?

Thanks MH!

Just call Motorcycles Unlimited and ask if they know.

I think there is a automotive upholstery place on louetta though I am not sure if they do motorcycle seats.

The place on Louetta is high dollar...I've gone in for a few quotes in the past. Go see his younger brother on FM 1960 near Perry Rd. - Coleman's Upholstery. Good work, reasonable - lot's of normal restoration. Or Medina's down on Tidwell near 45 north. Medina does a lot of really nice custom work.

Couldn't read ya'lls post due to a ban, but I found a place up in Montgomery.

Dropped it off Tuesday and got it back Thursday, quick job for a good price! He re-covered front and rear seats, and added and shaped some neoprene on the front seat for some longer-ride comfort. I'll try to get some picures up later, but here is the contact info!

They can do any custom work and I saw a lot of killer hand-tooled leather seats there, but I kept mine simple until I decide on a future paint scheme.
