BMW R75/6 seat

Where people take their oldtimer bike for a ride on a sunny summer afternoon, Appie takes his bike for a ride to work every day and did so for the last 5 years. 300.000 km on the clock and no where near from retirement. This meant the seat had to be extra durable for everyday use. Not cutting down on the materials, I used my finest quality vegetable tanned leather by Remy Carriat, super strong and flexible. The foam I used  I got from my friend at Mepla (Oostzeedijk Rotterdam). This high quality foam is used for refurbishing Gispen chairs. For the thread I used 20’s Serafil.
