How to Build a Display Motorcycle Seat

Published by Naseem Muaddi on June 11th, 2012

In April, I wrote an article titled “Why I Build Miniature Car Seats“. The article received such great feedback, that I decided to put together a short how-to video on the subject. This time, however, I’m building a display motorcycle seat.

To build the seat along with me, you’ll need the following templates: Display Motorcycle Seat Backrest and Display Motorcycle Seat Base. They’re in PDF format. Just print them off your computer and you’re ready to get started.

Please leave any questions that you have in the comments section below and I’ll be happy to answer them.

  6. Thanks guys. I love those razors, I have two and I use them nearly every day. I’ve had mine so long that I don’t remember where they came from but I did see the same ones for sale at the Joanne Fabric store. I’ll try to get a part number for you as soon as I can.

    The video is fabulous! Not only informative, but very well done. My hats off to you Naseem. Im gonna make some of those today. I had to go to Youtube to watch It. It never would load from here.

    • I’m really glad you liked it poppy! Send some pics over when you’re done your seat. I’d love to see them and remember you can download the templates in the article above.

    Nice job!!! Very informative demonstration…
    Same procedures are used for real motorcycle seats when doing some repairs or changing the design.
    Furthermore, miniature upholstery projects help us to display a variety of designs we can create and customize, giving our customers an idea and/or chance to watch and choose one of its like.
