Early Aftermarket Seats - Pre Bates era

First type circa 1946 look like couch cushions. Ugly, but probably comfortable.

A slightly later style from 1948, still huge but some nicer lines. Must have used some really strong springs in the back to support both rider and passenger!

Here's a neat dual seat from 1948 with Telescopic Tube Mounting.

A shrouded telescopic spring solo seat setup with the grab bar appearing to come off of the pillion. I wonder if any of these seats with shrouded springs have survived?


These sprung pillions circa 1948 would go nicely behind a Lycett saddle.

JoMo gets it right. The Walker PSS2 from 1948. Very close to what Mr. Bates would be offering in the early 1950's.
