Chibi Parts Wanted
« on: June 14, 2015, 06:41:18 AM »
All,

I'm in need of a Chibi non deluxe seat (that's used on the Blue Chibi) and an exhaust pipe and heat shield. If need be, I would be willing to purchase a complete Chibi for parts.

Please mail me or post if you have anything to offer.

Thanks - Kevin

Hi Kevin...
"Oldbikeguy" here in Washington State. I have 2 incomplete orange Chibi's, (I've not tried to check what year they are ). I have 2 seats, but both need new covers. I will be keeping 1 seat for sure to resto one Chibi.
I did see a NOS ( new old stock) complete Chibi seat on eBay recently for about $75-$100.  To my knowledge, currently, no one makes or sells  Chibi replacement seat covers...

 I've recently been dealing with an eBay seller who sells reproduction seat covers for vintage ( 60's-70's) Japanese cycles (mostly Honda). I've bought seat covers for some of my old Hondas & they are pretty nice & of reasonable quality. I am currently dealing with him to have him begin making reproduction Bridgestone 50cc Homer & Bridgestone 50cc Surfrider/BS7 model seat covers. Like the Chibi seat covers, to my knowledge, no one makes seat covers for those model Bridgestones, either. I recently sent this eBay seller an old, un-usable, but complete original Homer seat cover & BS7 seat cover to  be used for patterns to make new ones.
If this Bridgestone motorcycle seat cover fabrication process does work out, I have been given permission via e-mail from Richard Clark ( this website's owner) to post an ad that has the seat cover seller's contact info. I will soon re-contact the eBay seller & ask him if I can send an old, but complete Chibi seat cover for him to begin making those as well. The only thing I'm getting out of this are repro Homer, BS7, & Chibi seat covers. My primary intent is to help create a source for owners of Homers, BS7's, & Chibi's to obtain decent seat covers that no one currently offers. I may also be able to offer you some Chibi parts, limited to frame, wheels, ( non-engine items). Let me know what you need.
Take Care,
Dale

Thanks for the post.

As mentioned in my post, I'm looking for a seat that fits a non-deluxe model (blue) Chibi. The orange Chibi's are associated with deluxe models. Those seats are readily available online.

Feel free to shoot me an picture of your seats. Perhaps you have non-deluxe that someone painted orange.

Thanks.

Kevin.
