Home made sheep skin seat cover

Post  lacko on Sun 11 Jan 2015, 5:54 pm

Hi All, after my first reasonable ride (Sydney to Canberra return) I had to do something about the seat. An hour out of Sydney and my arse was killing me!

Went to the local small sheepskin place on Canterbury road and got them to cut a large sheep skin in half, then went to Clark rubber hoping for some memory foam but could only get 12mm standard foam.

Bit of a craft afternoon and here are the results. Haven't gone for a ride yet but I'll let you know. Total cost $47.50.

Looks good, but I think it would look even better if you did the whole seat.

What an awesome result. 
You will definitely benefit from the sheepskin, especially with the added foam. 
I've run sheepskin on most of my bikes for years. Wool has some amazing abilities. It breaths and keeps your arse cool as well as the padding. 
The only recommendation I can make is to carry a plastic bag under your seat, to cover your seat when you leave your bike outside overnight to protect from dew and rain. A soggy sheepskin is a real drag.

Much difference? My bandit came with a sheepskin(no foam) and it is no more comfortable than the seat uncovered, it would be interesting to read ho your padded sheepskin works out. Let us know what the results are I may have a go at mine.
