seat/saddle

Has anyone found a good cover for an 80 standard seat. I am getting small tears on the seams.

Yep, I've only heard good things about B+H, although I have never used any of their products.

I HAVE used, and will always use B&H. Covers look stock, fit well, and are a good price for the quality.

I have the same good experience with B&H.

Look like the original cover.

I found Dis-covers on Ebay, contacted and ordered directly (not from Ebay). They were cheaper for me, great to deal with and as close to OEM as I could find. https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/discovers

I know getting pics on here can be a hassle, but can you share the specifics? (Source, cost, quality, fit & finish, how well the install went, etc...) Recovering the saddle is on my long list. Thanks.

Regards

I got this one. My girlfriend did it, took the old one off -the foam was still good- put the new cover on with the metal hooks and glue.
