TY175: Seat Preparation

As I'm not using the Sammy Miller seat / tank unit, I bought a used seat from eBay.

I've stripped off the homemade seat cover, and removed the brackets from the seat pan - snapping a couple of bolts in the process. The seat foam doesn't look too bad, but the pan needs a bit of work. I called Andrew Leighton at RK Leighton who gave me an estimate of c£80 to totally refurb the whole seat, inc new seat cover. So, I've sent it off.

Here's what he's working with.
