Roger Dennis is a well known Motorbike seat restorer and has been doing this for over 30 years for the VJMC.

I have recommended him on here to many members in the past.

He done my RD400C seat years ago and the job was perfect.

I called him today to discuss my DT250 seat.

I also mentioned project X and he has shown an interest in refurbing our seat to a custom finish.

I have asked him to come on the forum and have a look.

It would be good to get him on-side to do our seat as so far we only have a cheap pattern cover and no volunteer to fit it.

I know and2bikes is struggling with the base so to get Roger on board would be good.



Roger also covered the seat on the Kawasaki Samurai that won best in show at Stafford this year.

He also trades as rdeny on ebay selling seat covers.



Lets hope Roger has a look at this forum and comes on-board to show off his excellent work.

well, i"ve fitted a seat cover ( a good one too ) and to be honest, i made a bit of a pigs ear of it ( my inexperience gave the benefit of the doubt to a knackered foam ).  Given a poor seat is highly noticeable if Roger makes a kind offer of doing it for us we should grab it.  Actually i might inquire about he sorting mine out during the winter because what i sit on makes my arse go dead.

Nice to know Roger is willing to do our seat for us Paul , maybe he could do something a bit special and use it as an advert for his own work . I"d be very interested as I"ve got a seat that needs doing myself  



Good work on your part as well Paul finding this guy

It would be great to have someone within the club that restored seats. I completely cocked up fitting a cover to my 1st blue 400C some years back - managed to glue it on twisted  It"s not that easy

It's very easy to knock bikes into a box. Getting them back out again is another thing!

A professional custom seat would finishe it off. Sounds like a very welcome offer.



He will even get a little advert in the wellard
