I appreciate all the feedback. I’m on the hunt for memory foam and it is not easy to find. You either have to purchase a entire roll or go buy a single bed mattress memory foam cover in order to use a 12” piece. Looks like I need to be in the foam business and sell small sections  :006:

Thanks again,
Rick

Found someone to do it but need to purchase foam, because they don’t stock it and don’t want to purchase a sheet of it due to expense. They don’t normally use this stuff for there key business. Went to all the crafting places with no luck.

google for manufacturer or wholesalers  and see if they  have a small piece laying around.

All I can say I need to go in the memory foam business, it’s like trying to find a needle in hay stack.

Finally found some 1” memory foam. Hopefully I get it in time to install before trip to South Dakota.
Also hopefully it won’t raise the seat height much seeing I have a 31 inseam. I have the low suspension so hopefully that will help. Thanks for all the info on this just hope it works for me as well.

I have standard seat and was not happy with it. I had a custom seat on my old bike and very used to it. I brought the comfort seat and returned it as soon as I got home. custom seat is not much more comfortable than the standard seat.

I am now looking at custom seat for the bike.

I'm in Virginia, USA and had a custom two-up seat built by a local custom seat builder in Rockville, MD.  If you are interested, please let me know.
