1917 Upholstery

Post by Oldav8tor » Thu Mar 26, 2020 1:01 pm

Does anybody have pictures of what the seat backs in a 1917 touring look like with the upholstery removed? I got a kit from classtique but am reluctant to remove the old without some idea of what I'm getting into.

These two photos saved off a forum post , of a partially deconstructed 1917 touring, might help.

Seat springs from Snyder's.

I hope these images from snapshots from the early 1990's help!
