This e-mail is to let any owners of 50cc Step- Thru Homer model with plastic leg shields, to say that last year I sent an original Homer seat cover to an eBay seller so he could have his Asian ( Thailand, I think) business associate make a reasonable-quality, accurate copy. It took several months, but he sent me 2 of the new seat cover copies, which even have accurate-looking white "BRIDGESTONE" stenciled lettering on rear panel, like the original. The quality seems to be as good as the original Japanese cover was. Later when I was finally to find an original 50cc Surfrider seat cover in fair condition ( this is the 50cc -forced-air cooling shrouded head model cycle that has the gas tank located in front of the rider), I sent this original cover to the same ebay seller who is having copies made that will be sold in his eBay store before long. I will use one of these on my 1964 Surfrider Resto project bike.
The seller's name is Andy Ng and his eBay store is vintagehondamotorcyclepart.
As far as I know, no one else makes/sell any decent BS cycle seat covers for these 2 models of Bridgestones. My new seat covers were provided for free since I provided the originals for a pattern, but I think Andy's price will be reasonable.
