Yup !! I just spoke with a representative over the phone and she told me they are working on giving it a part number....

What do you think of it? I love it because it has the stitching that resembles the look used on the 70s enduro bikes that I hoard.

I like it a lot, comfortable seats usually don't look good, but that one has the exact classic look that is so compatible with the bike
hope it's as comfortable as it looks like...

Hopefully they sell for similar price as the majority of their kits. Since you actually phoned them, was there any mention of optional colors? Just curious. I'm going with black anyhow, but I know a lot of people like brown.

Nop, she said she had no info about neither color, nor price
I don't think they would be stupid and over price it, since the number of SCR's is not that much, and it's only a one year bike...
So, they better price it good before we get used to our seats and be comfortable with them... I am starting to love my stock seat already....

"It should be up on the site tomorrow. The seat pictured will be 194.99 and we will have the same seat with a basic cover for 184.99.

Hmmm. Nothing on the site yet. Let's see. With previous status, reports 2-weeks = 1-month. So tomorrow = Monday/Tuesday?

I'm dying to get my hands on that kit! My wife has a lot of experience with reupholstering from previous boats and campers and she thinks I best get a different staple gun. She doubts my vintage chrome ARROW T-50 forearm pump I inherited from my father is fit for the task. Nothing beats a suggestion from your wife to buy more tools!

Isn't it a full seat assembly? Like take off old seat put on new one? Use only a 10mm ...

Or it's a cover that requires stapling like the Canadian made one sold on ebay??!!

THAT'S IT, except mine was made in Saddle Brook, NJ.
And trust me when I say it will NOT be getting replaced. It will be handed down to one of my two boys who have both borrowed it on many occasions. My dad was a tool and die maker by trade, so I inherited some of coolest trinkets for tools you could imagine. But best of all was his tool box that he used for his entire career and I have now used for the 30 some odd years he's been gone. And get this....he made it in high school wood shop. I made a freaking spice rack in high school, and I had to tell my mom what it was! I miss you dad...

I believe it will be a kit, like most of them on their site. However, I believe they will do the work for $25 if you send them your seat.

I think they offer some as complete seats, but I would be suprised if that's the case with a one year wonder like our SCRs. And it wouldn't be under $200 for a complete seat. Maybe I'm wrong. I hope I'm wrong.

I recall from a related thread they said a seat pan mold setup would be $$$$ for them. With a 1 year model bike, it likely wouldn't be cost-effective. So, they did a foam and cover kit only.
Anyone hesitant to try doing it yourself should know it's not all that hard and requires patience and a strong stapler. There are videos to watch and if it all seems too much, the $25 installation (+S&H) fee is reasonable. OR a local upholsterer might do it for a similar amount. =)
