Carpeadians,
 
Gather round (but 2 meters apart please !)  :lol:
 
Up for sale this week I have the bespoke "Else Made"  Gel seat I had made for me literally weeks before I parked WinalotPrime up :isurrender:
 
I picked the seat up in the August and stopped riding at the end of Oct 2018, poss did a max of 600 miles with it on.
 
The rider section is thick sculptured orthopedic memory foam and a big "Wonder Gel" insert and 15mm more padding than std, the pillion section is approx 12mm deeper than std using the same memory foam and has a gel insert too. I chose the design "Ridgeback" and the materials, and had the Yamaha "Tuning Fork" logo embroidered into the pillion section, looks smart.  (As requested just added photos of the seat on the bike lower down the thread)
 
It has all the rubber seat bungs in place and a lock & key also, it can just be put straight on as is unless you want to swap the lock over for your std one (2 minute job), easy peasey.
 
Cost me a kings ransom !, but the 600 or so miles with it were spot on  :good:
 
Advertising it on here first before I bung it on Facebook & Ebay.
 
Looking for £200 ono + any P+P unless you're local (ish) and want to collect.

That is a lovely looking seat Gdogg, I was very tempted till I realised I don't do nearly enough miles to get a sore bum and it won't help out the bilateral inguinal hernias I seem to have found recently so can't justify the cash, good luck with the sale, I'm sure it will go quick.

Hi Snowbird,

 

How scary is that, the seat was designed with bilateral inguinal hernias at the forefront !!   :rotflmmfao:

Who'd have thought !!!

Hi Wikas, it was a London bike tiger, dont think the first owner was from Devon either (me and two others owned it), cant be 100% on that as I no longer have the V5
And it deffo did not look like that when I rescued it !! Took a lot of hours in the garage and wonga thrown at it to get it shining as it does

Do you want a pair of hernias to go with it? I have some you can have for free, but I'm guessing Gdogg will do the same deal if it's medically possible.
