New seat and rack

Hi All,
New to the forum so hello to all. I have a rebel 300 here in Thailand and have just had a new seat and rear carrier made and attach some pics. The carrier fits the passenger seat locations and the seat has been redone using the existing substructure with newfoam and gel. Cover has red stitching to match the tanks. Cost for carrier was 2500 baht (79USD) and same cost for the seat

Excellent!
Great value too.
'Ragabob' what part of Thailand are you based?
Thinking of similar seat job for mine (Chiang Mai).
Best wishes.

Welcome.
Your pics show you have the 2018 edition Rebel, right?

Oh my...that's beautiful. Looks a lot cushier for the tushy too! How do you like it? More comfortable than the stock seat?

New seat and rack

Just had the pillion seat recovered to mtach. All looking good I think. Cover for the pillion seat was 800baht and the existing foam was used.

In answer to the question re comfort, I did a 3-4 hour ride yesterday and the seat is a vast improvement on the stock seat. I am a pensioner so need a bit of comfort lol.

The seat was made by Kuhn Narong, on the 1006 road to San Kampaeng in Chiang Mai as per the attached. Head towards San Kampaeng and Narong is on the right just opposite 7/11 and Tesco Lotus

Wow, I know that place.
Thanks 'Ragabob'.
Maybe we'll cross paths on the road; I'll certainly recognize your bike!
I'm a pensioner too, so I can relate.
