    Good. But out nowhere, you sprung "The material" not previously mentioned.
    I have several of those. Is there a "material" with a stripe down the middle?
    Also, does the "material" limit the foam thickness??

    Yesterday I found a 1975 schwinn lowrider complete that was headed to the scrap yard. Thank you for this video, it’s gonna come in handy

    That metal frame is horribly uncomfortable you could have used thicker foam.

    Yeo thank you for these videos.
    Found a 72/73 stingray with GT fan mags sitting in a boat shed just rotting away, it still looks good for a 70s bike but it’s rusty, you’re helping out a lot.
    Either I’m gonna paint it blue with white wall gt fan mags or green with color matching seat
    I’m excited
