WTF Mousepad Motorcycle Seat

Published by Naseem Muaddi on March 13th, 2012

Every now and then we like to share with our readers a DIY project gone horribly wrong. Why? Because it’s funny.

Meet Tom, the brains behind the mousepad-motorcycle seat. This Jack-of-all-trades published an unintentionally funny tutorial on how he foamed a motorcycle seat pan using none other than his computer mousepad.

In fact, he’s so proud of the job that he did, that he’s currently “working on a source of mousepads” – which he claims are just as good, but cheaper than the professional-grade gel pads we use.

My favorite quote from his tutorial:

I also read about people having upholstery shops trim down the foam pad on the seat. This seemed like a good option, but I decided to take the seat apart to see if I could do a better job myself.

Well, mission unaccomplished! But I guess if he’s happy with what he did, that’s all that really matters.

    Guess I’m doing it all backwards. I usually end up correcting mice infestations rather than adding pads for the little suckers.

    lol I love reading this stuff. I know i am not any where near the best, but at least I haven’t had to resort to using office supplies.

    bubble wrap for extra padding….why didnt i think of that… cheap and effective! the bubbles only pop if you hit a large enough pot hole.
