Re: Nice Seat

Looks like there might be some identifying script on the rider's backrest? I can't read it tho.

Yep - saw that - on the pillion's back rest. I'm thinking there is something on the rider's back (butt) rest!! One thing for sure - that is one clean set of seats!!!

Re: Nice Seat

It looks like a recover of the stock seat; that is, with no change to the shape of the stock seats. I don't know who did it, but it does look very nice. Subjective, of course...

Re: Nice Seat

When i had my Hayabusa, i used this company called Tobin Seats in York, Pa... that was my first thought but didnt see any BMW work done there. they lowered my seat and added cool embroidery.

Re: Nice Seat

The lettering says K1200lt. Based on the youtube vid I don't think the seat was made in the states

Re: Nice Seat

Ok .... found it, pinterest shows the uploader to be "Tapiceria de la moto de Marquez", which means Motorcycle Upholsterer of Marquez, im assuming Marquez is in Spain or its his last name, it does mention Sevilla, and that is in Spain. Many other models too, including Gel seats.
His email is:

Re: Nice Seat

wow. i grew up in Sevilla in the early 60's. first bike at age 17 was a 50 something sears moped. second was a vespa, 3rd was a moto guzzi. all without a drivers license .

i don't remember seeing a seat maker there that made custom seats for the LT.........oh.....oops....... that was 50 years ago wasn't it?

i did have a saddle for my horse that was beautifully crafted.....

lest i digress.

that's still a beauty.
