I thought wow the tank has fan stencils on it, previous owner was a nutter!
What is the story on needle bearings in the swinging arm? Got some part numbers for us?

Does anyone know where I can get my BSA seat upholstered in the US? I only have the seat pan,

Maybe get the correct cover from Leighton and then have a local shop do the foam and build?

You need to obtain a new cover and replacement foam, then send it to nearly any upholstery shop.

The guy I used in Laredo for a dozen years could build foam using just the pan & cover. I could get his address and send it to you. I'm certain he would charge between $75 - $100, plus postage.

I always gave him photos of the best examples i could find, so the final shape would be assured.

Thanks Paul, I asked some friends in the Norton club and apparently there is someone nearby, so that is where I am going first. Leighton in uk said they can do it, I would have to ship the seat base to them. Will see how it goes.

I should be getting the motor back soon, that’s gonna be an exciting moment…

Leighton has nice covers and foam. Have bought several from them and had local guy fit them. Last couple I did myself and looked good in the end. Leighton cover for my Commando had lettering too high on seat back.
