Restoring an old seat

 
This is the seat that used to be on my CADbike 33 before the rebuild, it was allready old when I put it on there 20 years ago. As I had sold the WLA seat of my CADbike #1 to Hans I needed something new. I started by stripping off the nasty foam and cover...
 
 
For some reason the bolts for the hinge and springs had been removed. I ground off the reinforcement strip, filled up the grind marks and made a new shorter reinforcement.
 
 

For extra strength I put the hingemounts in a "tub", just weld, grind, weld, grind etcetera...
To be continued....
