    If you like something a bit different I've used skateboard decks as the base before. Leaves a nice lil kick up in the rear. Might not be fitting for somebody that wants a totally vintage look.

    I'm going to take some photos and get some foam - I should have the seat and the bike finished up this weekend or just thereafter!

    Yep, mixed multi rebond is like thick carpet foam and works very well and comes in several thicknesses and density ratings. I got a chunk at a garage sale someone used to lie down in their pickup till they sold it. I've been saving it for a great seat.

    I got seat foam from hobby lobby but not happy with it. Going to redo when I get time and better padding. I think I will go with the carpet pad idea! That or a yoga mat foam. It's high density too...

    I did with yoga carpet foam, 3 levels stick together. After you adjust with a cuter...
    I will do the same for my next project. Seat cover :42 boxes at the door.
