1066 SEAT, yah it’s wrong but it’s right!


Recommended Posts

Looked for three years for a  decent seat at junk yards , then finally found one missing one arm rest, then found a mate for it , then had it reupholstered . 

Yes I know it’s supposed to be black on the brackets and black on the back but don’t tell the correct police .

If it’s your machine and your sitter that you have to please then it’s correct 👍🏼

Yes , one was in real nice shape with just a small hole in the front, the other was worn on the bottom .  My upholstery shop made a slip cover for them .  It’s not perfect but it was all they could do .  If someone ever comes up with something better I’m a player . 

Took me a long time to find the first one and then along came another a week later. I love junk yards so I’m always looking . 

Usable ones  are far and few between these days . 

The seat I found was white so I just bought the top .  My bottom cushion is from my local IH dealer and I had the wrap around back rest in it . 

They are built with such thin metal that as soon as you lean back it’s bent. 

They offered to warranty it but the replacement would have been the same so I said forget it .

Let’s see the results if you have time.

 

if someone finds a shop to do these arm rest properly we could send them a lot of work.

No thanks for sharing in case someone likes the idea.  I think the photos members share are very helpful and it’s the way you like it.  I’m trying to get a 1256 close to original but that’s just not going to happen since I purchased a 66 series weight bracket today after seeing another RPF post of a 1256 with 66 L weights.  Keep the pictures coming 👍
