Cafe Seat (Ebay) Anyone Buy one?
« on: April 23, 2015, 11:47:49 am »
Hi All,

Just wondering if anyone has bought this cafe seat off of ebay. Any feedback or opinions would be much appreciated. Just wondering about quality, fitment etc. I am looking at it for my cb500 build

Or any other seat from this seller:

I'm a little wary of products from Hong Kong ebay sellers.  For about the same coin, you can get a comparable seat from DCC, that they will honor customer service-wise.

I kind of feel the same way.

I'm looking for a seat like this

Anyone have any leads?

I checked DCC but they primarily only have thin brat styles. I'd like something a little thicker and would cover up the end/edges of the tank

My brother bought this seat for his CB550 and it wasn't that bad at all. It was actually fairly decent

However, when i get an aftermarket seat, I will be supporting our board member Harisluv. His quality is better than Dime City and I'm sure he would back his product up just the same as DCC.

Thanks for your help! I have been in touch with Harisluv, and inquiring about a potential custom seat with him. Thanks again!

Man, that bike's so fast, they have to strap the tank down with a belt!  ;D
