Finally found a correct dated buddy seat for my 65. Needs repair tho. Anyone have a place they would recommend. Heathers Leathers and Worsham Castle only do the earlier types.

Panz4ever!

The Factory offered replacement covers for many vinyl seats.
You might try http://www.billscustomcycles.com/, or older Dealerships.

PS: Don't forget that metalflake Hi-Fi red and blue were options in '65!

Panz4ever,
How did you make out finding a new seat cover for your buddy seat? I am in the same boat, I have the original buddy seat for my 65 but it is in need of some love. Let me know if you find a replacement cover.

red...gonna call Bills Custom Cycle this week. I have used them for a couple of parts I needed for the sidecar for my 49 I am putting back together as well as a couple of OEM motor parts. From looking at the cover it seems to be attached by a series of 'clips' (for lack of a better word). I have a seat from a later model that had the underside mounts hacked off by some nimrod. The cover is in excellent shape. If I can determine that it would be a correct cover for the 65 I may try to use that cover. Keep you posted.
