I'm thinking about tapering the forward sides of my seat to be narrower. It's not covering the compartment, just hanging over, so I could probably just trim the plastic and pull in the existing vinyl.
Is it a bad idea to try to use real leather or something a step up from vinyl?
I would like to know the answer to this question. I have many yards of light brown leather from a couch that came out of a High end Hotel. The marriot at a beach resort. While i have seen leather seating on Harleys, i believe it to be an "outdoor" type leather. One that sheds rain, like a horses saddle.
