I don't know if this is any help, Two years ago at the Stafford Show, There was a dealer from I think the Sheffield area, They had a very good range of seat for most makes,, I looked at a seat that they did for my Matchless 1964 650 CSR, They looked quite well made to me.
So over to the experts who may remember who they where, I will also look through my drawers and other places and see if I can find there card. If you have resolved the problem let me know it may save me some hours looking.


Cheers Owen.

In Case its just the Seat Cover. I bought a new one on Fleabay. It fitted verry well.

I had my seat from Leighton. Overall it's ok. If I was having one now, I would have an input regarding the foam. After five minutes of riding your on the seat pan. And after any kind of distance it becomes an issue. The only other thing is one of the rear holes doesn't quite line up with the hole in the frame. Which wouldn't matter apart from the fact that he convinced me to have a complete seat as the one off the bike wasn't very good, as it appeared to be a pattern one. That one fitted fine.
