My bike is in beautiful shape and great running condition but there are a few things that I'd like to replace right away. One is the seat. The seat that is currently on the bike came from another Honda and while it does fit the bike okay, it is ripped and covered with tape and one side doesn't latch properly. We have the original seat pan from the bike and I could go the route of taking it to a local shop and having the seat re-built ($$$) or see if I can find the original stock seat. Does anyone have one for sale? Or, could you point me to where I might find one online? I thought I saw one on BikeBandit.com (http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorc ... k3/o/m9150) and want to make sure this is the right seat before ordering it. And they list two: SEAT *NH1L* 695516 (3880676-001) for $164.81 and SEAT *NH1L* 695518 (3880678-001) for $151.88.

Thanks for any help you can offer. Here's a picture of the bike:

Before buying any seats be sure to check that the latches/hinges look like they should line up and bolt on correctly..

Also, search Ebay for "CL350 seat cafe" for some pretty darned cool "cafe" style seats from overseas. Since I seem to remember you wanting to go for that look..


If you end up having the seat re-covered, then call around to every upholstery shop that you can find. Eventually you'll find a cheaper one. Many "mom-n-pop" shops do cheap but quality work..


Also, beware of bikebandit as they have TONS of bad reviews..

Thanks for the info, Bird76Mojo. Very helpful. Yes, I am thinking about a more cafe look for my bike so I will definitely check out the links you sent.

And, I agree about BikeBandit. They just screwed up my husband's order and sent him the clutch lever that he cancelled instead of the clutch cable that he has on order. Their customer service is awful, too.

No problem. Like I said, search Ebay for "CL350 cafe seat" and some pretty cool ones come up.. If you like a single seater that is.
