BMW R65LS Restoration

Seat


The vinyl seat had some paint marks on it.  I don't know what sort of paint or when it happened.  Google suggested the solution could be to use anti-bacterial hand gel as it contains alcohol.  It didn't work.  However white spirit shifted it and did not harm the vinyl.

NOTE:- I started this article after I had started the restoration hence the lack of pictures up to now.  Pictures should be available for the rest of this article

The seat base is very rusty.  To use electrolysis or vinegar I'll have to remove the viinyl and the foam rubber.  Can I put them back?  I once got a seat for a Norton wideline featherbed frame professionally done by an upholsterer. It was very good.  Maybe I'll check that out.
I can get a new cover from Motobins for £23.40
