The "Do It Yourself" SEAT BASE PLATE made of thermoplastic for motorcycle seat construction
Here the base plate for motorcycle seat construction that has been tried and tested for years: the thermoplastic
Carrier plate from KICKSTARTER, the DIY shop when it comes to converting a motorcycle into a cafe racer
or scrambler goes.
This high-quality base plate combines numerous advantages :
It can be deformed by heat (eg with a hot air gun).
After cooling, it retains the selected shape.
Then the panel can be cut to size perfectly : similar to wood
it can be sawed, cut, drilled and, for example, sanded down / rounded off at the edges
(to protect the cover from damage).
If this plate rests directly on the lacquered frame, it will not work that way
quickly penetrates the paint, such as a metal base plate.
The seat cover can be glued effortlessly on the underside (for example with Pattex)
and even staple it , which lowers costs if the bench is then to be covered by a saddler.
Of course, the material does not splinter, is paintable and weatherproof.
