Revision as of 08:57, 4 May 2019

Seem like every Vespa Grande bike I buy for restoration is of course plagued with a dried, cracked and ripped up vinyl seat. In the past I would shop on Buy Sell for a better looking option that when I got it in my hands can tell that the 40 year old seats vinyl was just a few ass plants away from also being split and cracked.
I had seen a vinyl kit advertised by for a while by Northwest Classic Seat Covers and finally decided to try one on my own personal bike.
It turned out so good and has held up so far for 6 months.
