Here is are some pics of the restored seat!

Restoration specs:
-Covers made by member "29 Chev" (Stew)
-New foam cushioning
-Sandblasted & color matched seat frame
-New SS hardware
-New seat adjuster knob from member "Bolens 1000" (Brian from Bolens Parts & Supplies)

I'm also keeping the original covers as they are too nice to toss. I conditioned them and stored them away in an airtight bag.

Very nice seat but WOW that's one sexy looking old Bolens right there.

 

Now you need to find some Bolens wheel weights for on it. :rolling:

It just keeps getting better and better.

It doesn't hurt that it's arguably one of the best looking GT's ever built.

Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous!  :worshippy1:  :worshippy1:  :worshippy1:

 

 

Thanks! I plan to do a different front and rear tire setup in sometime in the future.

 

I don't see anything wrong with the rears.  Those AGS look great.

 

As for the front, maybe a set of Vredestein V61 5-Ribs would set it off.

 

But, that would mean that you would have to find a set of HT axles and rims as they don't come in the 10" size you have on it now.
