Hi ASF members my name is Keven (big Kev)i am the owner of VCM Cycle seats which is a motorcycle upholstery business located in Carlton in Sydney . i here you say "where is Carlton" (i have added the google map to help)is south of the city towards Rockdale. this is a home business so primarily i run from home 24/7 . i have been a member of ASF for a little while and had been liaising with Si about advertising my business with ASF.this is a dedicated business to doing custom 1 off seats and re upholstery. i do custom shape seats and i have a logo embroidery service as well as in house logo designs.we all so offer a sheepskins seat cover service as well.also some recent events i have ventured into custom leather belts.

i don't expect every one here to jump at this opportunity straight away but if there is anything at all that i can help you with even if its just advice then I'm happy to offer it . my website shows all my work to date .www.vcmcycleseats.com.au.

so thank you to Si very much for this opportunity and i hope i can help some ASF members with there seats . i have posted up some pics of my most fave work guys . this i hope gives you an insite as to what my work is like . i have done work for 1 ASF member and i havent got pics yet but i hear it looks great

I would like to offer a 20% discount to all ASF members on upholstery thanks guys

Hey Kev,
I was just changing the way your pics were presented...
The way you had them made the screen pic huge in width...its easier to scroll down with pics. ;)
Nice work by the way...once my bike is done I'll be talking to you about a seat.

Hi Kev Quick Question
I am in the process of my Street fighter build and would like a custom leather/ vianl seat to suit
I am painthing the tank and seat in a Elenor Mustang theam. woth 2 black strips running the length of the bike
I was wondering if its possible to have a greay seat with Black strips.
And how would this effect the ware of the seat seing it will have seams running length ways down it
Here is the bike
http://i94.photobucket.com/albums/l91/eddahenry/DSCF3086.jpg
and here is the colour scheem i will be using

kev@vcm
05-05-2010, 11:47 AM
WOW thats going to be a great looking bike when its all done ,

there wont be any probs doing the strips at all as we can do whats called a baseball stich. i have added of pics a custmers bike i had just finished the other month and as you can see we used to styles of materls to creat a diffrent effect here and we did a baseball stich which keeps the seat area smooth as silk . as for leather or vynil we could do both to create an unusal effect i have some new materials and 1 of them has the same texture as brushed alliminium and that with to stripes of black leather would be very effective . just food for thourt. i hope that this helps you with styles and choices .

thanks bigkev

Hey Kev, I'm in the process of finishing the Harris build that's got your 1100 motor in it.

I'm using a 675 seat that looks horn but feels like a plank. I need to cut the front of the seat pad down to make it fit the tank properly. I'll send it down when I'm done................. can you pad up he seat so my fat arse doesn't go numb?

I'm thinkin maaayyyybe something like this.. or maybe it would be too much purple.. ahhh the decisions.. Other option I like would be something like Pommies seat with purple piping like his blue, just a nice subtle line of purple around the seat.. hmmmm.. could you maybe PM me a rough ballpark figure for say something like this pic Kev.. so I can start putting money away for the Kev seat fund :D ..

For anybody thinking about getting Kev to work his magic on their own seat, don't waste time.

Talk to Kev about what you want and leave it to him.

Have had the XJR1300 seat back for a week or so and it's getting more comfortable every time I ride.

Over the years, I've had a few other seats recovered over the years but Kev's work outshines the lot of them.

Kev, my Harris has this seat on it.

http://www.asfphotos.com/upload/1291057852.jpg


Not even sure what it came from (possibly an early 675). It is as hard as a fucking plank. Can you rebuild it with a bit more padding and comfort for my fat arse? Not after anything but black in the cover but am open to suggestions on finish (I do like the look of your retro stuff)

What sort of money would I be up for and what would your turn around time be?
