Need upholsterer in Portland for SV650 track seat
I'm in need of some custom work on my stock SV650 seat as I find it too squishy and grippy for good movement on the bike at track days. I've got a spare seat pan and would like to get a seat built with much firmer foam and a grippier cover. Any recs on a good upholsterer who does bike seats? I found New Church Moto down the page but I don't need anything fancy per se, just some solid function.

He's not in the PDX area, but Wyckedan does a great job. Just requires mailing your seat up to Seattle for a couple days.

There is a guy on Prescott just east of 33rd. He has a pretty good selection of cover material too. I think you can get foam from Sargents.

Dude, Ginger at New Church Moto will work with you on what you want done. She's VERY busy with work but her prices are reasonable for this type of work and will do anything from basic to fancy. And she's local.

You will find none finer than "Wyckedan." Put that seat in a box and ship it along with ideas. He will work with you, and is "More" than reasonable in pricing. Also short turn around time, so if summer ever comes back you will have your ride...AJ
