***********MOTORSPORT | CARBON FIBER FABRIC MotorCycle SEATS***

Hey guys with all this Carbon Fiber vinyl fabric craze, a Motorcycle enthusiast caught wind and had me re-upholster his bike seats in my DURABLE carbon fiber vinyl fabric. I know it's not a BMW but you can see how this material can be used for seats as other CF vinyls are too thin for these applications. Just wanted to show my fellow BMW enthusiast my work and dedication. Thank you all for your support.
Enjoy.

Oh and the Bike is a 2000 Kawasaki ZX7R with custom paint job.

Well with an iron clad unmatched 3 year warranty it will last for well over 3 years for sure. Remember this is an Automotive/Marine industrial grade thick vinyl fabric used for those purposes. It will hold up just as well if not better than any vinyl motorcycle seat or automotive seats. Which we all know how long they last.

I wish I had pics also. I should have taken some.

We installed the same sort of material on the rx-8 and it felt like it would last way longer than cloth or vinyl. It was also softer and looked a lot more expensive and more sporty at the same time.

yeah I hear you, too bad no pics. Automotive Vinyl always lasts longer than cloth like fabrics and leather. When are you doing your trim in CF vinyl fabric ALPINE? Let me know if you need some help and I will give you a great deal.
