Riddle me this..........

Those of you who have been here for the long haul, may remember that it all started with an A7 build. Progress there stalled for a while due to personal events that I shall not go into here. However things are now back on track, and the game is back on.
If you go back some weeks, I think it must be about 8, but I don't want to look 'cause it will do is piss me off, there's a post saying that the seat was off to the upholsterer. Well now, after how ever long it's been, it's back as can be seen below.
Wasn't sure about the colour when it was specced, but that's come out fine, the shape and the attitude on the bike is fine, the workmanship is shit!.
How is it, that after a two month wait, the whole job looks hurried? The stitching is not parallel in places, the rivets are not evenly placed and what I thought was going to be tuck and roll, pleats are rows of stitching. Not happy, but what to do? Pointless waiting another age to get the same guy to redo it, Contact Matt at Caulfield Leather I guess and send it up there to be done again....... what a bastard!!!!!


  1. Just out of interest, it wasn't Lee the Seat who made that for you? The shop is known as Viking Vinyl. He advertises in Rider's Digest and BSH.

  2. No mate, a local dude who has been doing upholstery all his life. Used to get work done by his dad before him.
