After giving the seat a good inspection I concluded the upholstery was still good, so for now, a good wash and see what it looks like. Maybe just a nice black and grey seat cover later. Hardware needs a clean up and paint, plus need to add brackets to bolt down on tub.

Are you going to remove your ABS unit or just leave it on-board?

I have disc brakes on the tub (working with the front-brakes)

My handbrake is a strip of velcro strap wrapped tightly over my front brake-lever  :lol8:

No.  Bike and sidecar brakes will work independenttly with separate master cylinders of the rear brake lever. No interference with the bikes brakes.

As jy van plan verander oor die kombi seat, dan sal ek hom graag by jou oorneem.

Nee sorry sal nie. Kyk my vrou is mos bederf… OK, onder andere dat sy weet hoe gemaklik die Kombi seat is en gevra het vir een.  :lol8:
