Is there anyone in USA who can rebuild a Schorsch Meier narrow seats whose rubber and foam have disintegrated ? cover is good as is frame and trim but it's not really usable as is and it's $800 for new seat !

I'd check with Barrington

I'd check with Barrington Motor Works in New Hampshire for ideas. Possibly Vech has a source.

In my own experience, It's

In my own experience, It's very difficult to rebuild a dualseat and have it look like the original. The new cover, for example, will often not have the same texture as the original and/or the seat just will not have the same shape as the original. My R60 had a re-built/recovered wide dualseat on it when I bought it and I disliked the way it looked even though it appeared to be a fine job otherwise. I went out on the IBMWR site with a WTB ad looking for a mint and original wide dualseat. Hardware was of no importance since I already had all of that stuff. I had quite a few replies and wound up buying a seat that made both me and the seller happy for a fraction of the cost of a new one. Even the padding was still good. You could try that route...

I have succesfully repaired

I have succesfully repaired these seats , remove the rubber . buy some spring steel sheet cut to size 25 mm 1.6mm thick (1 inch X 16guage) and enough to bolt across the seat where the two coil springs are located , about 7 incher i guess....round off the corners..... drill two rows of holes in the spring steel with a 1/8th drill about 20mm apart ( use a pedestal drill slow speed and lots of coolant , once you start drilling dont stop till you are through.)

... count the holes and drill the same number of holes across the nose of the seat frame and the back of the seat frame , go and buy some furniture springs they are about 9mm dia and cut them to length install one row across the front and one across the rear. If you cant cover it yourself then you need to take it to a motor trimmer ..... ask them to use only Tonneau cover material if you are looking for the original look and feel , this material is water proof and dose not sag like seat vinal ... I have also used this trick to convert a narrow seat to a wide seat cheers Peter
