Here's a picture of my first "Paying" motorcycle seat...only my second total, the first one I did was for me.  I'm aspiring to Saddleman's French seams! :D  Course now that he's got his dual needle fancy machine, that'll be hard to do.  Let me know what you think.



This is off of a sport bike that a guy at work painted.  They wanted a bike with wood look.  The bike looked pretty good, but the paint on the seat didn't last long.




The before and after.

Bobby,  Nice looking work! Keep it up and you will be adding one of those double needle machine to the shop just to keep up.   ;D

Real genius work is never neat and tidy.  LOL  I'm sure the boss will pay him to clean it up tomorrow.

(know he is his own boss)

I seem to get too many things going at once, and without a big shop to work in, things get cluttered quick! :o  I gotta build me a shop! ;D

Oh, don't worry. The shop you build will soon be just as cluttered! I have a 'huge' shop and I'm constantly losing the battle against clutter!

One technique that is supposed to help is when you walk into the shop, before  starting work, put 10 things away.

Or so I'm told.

Problem is, when I started back to work I'd have to move 20 things to get to the 10 I just put away! :'(
