    thinking about adding fringe to the 'hangy-down' part of the RM seat.

    Has anybody done this?

    and how did you do it?

    pics appreciated....

    I wish it was that easy...

    Not on the 15 RM.

    I wonder if the stick-on velcro would stay on...

    Just read a bunch of velcro stuff... general consensus is... it doesn't stick to leather very well.

    bummer...

    I wish they would have made the RM seat more like the vintage. Or at least added velcro to the back side so they could sell another overpriced aftermarket part.

    Take your seat to someone who works with leather and have some fringe made. He could then sewn some velcro to the seat and fringe and you could have them on or off depending on what you decide to do when you go riding.

    ...or snaps. Pretty sure any upholstery or western saddlery could do it for you.

    I used to do leather work. The absolute best glue I found for leather is Barge cement brand. I've glued lots of leather together with that stuff and it doesn't let go.
