Please describe the project specifications

This customer loves his bike and after spending a decent amount of money on getting just the way he wanted, he needed that final cherry on top to finish it off. We reached a final concept using a combination of photos he liked and bit of initiative, and viola! this is something i enjoy doing and sometimes find myself surprised at my own abilities when given the opportunity to explore my craft.

What was the purpose of this project? What did the client request?

the customer had just spent a lot of money on changing the style and colour of his prized possession, our job was to put the icing on the cake and deliver a custom designed motorbike seat to finish the job off.

What is unique or complex about the project?

the customer came to us with a few photos of designs that he liked, Once we had come to a final concept we got down to the making of the cover. Patterns were made and the use of 2 different grains of vinyl gave it a detail that is unique and something for those lucky enough to get up close with it.

What were the results of the project?

the customer was absolutely wrapped with this seat, it really finished off what is a truly magical bike. He loves his bike and so do many other members of his club, since doing this seat we have had the opportunity to do several others form his group.
