    Seats

    I went to put my classic style seats in my Pilgrim Sumo today as it past IVA 2 days ago.

    Bought on eBay 'BB Classic/Retro seats ideal for AC Cobra'

    However seats seemed too high, I removed runners as didn't need them to adjust but still too high? In fact didn't make any difference

    The problem was that the lower tube framework of seat is 46cm across, the Pilgrim floor pan only allows 40cm across, so seat frame was actually on side framework and about 10cm off the floor pan!

    Anyone suggest what seats do actually fit a Sumo 3 floor pan?

    Those seats didn't fit my old Cobra as well.

    Take a brave pill and alter what you have.

    Decided on a something diffeent for the next project

    But due width the seats from BB do not even reach the existing floor pan, so making floor lower would make no difference.

    I have ordered pair of Cobra SS seats, they are made to fit into tight area so hope they will fit.

    They give the lower width as 38cm which is perfect but may have to fit framework on floor pan to raise it slightly due the framework of the Pilgrim Sumo.

    Cancelled order for SS seats as think they will have same issue as BB Classics seats and not fit the very tight floor pan space in the Pilgrim Sumo.

    My option now appears to strip down my existing seats and redesign the back and seat base for a more traditional look then get my helpful local trimmer to make new covers

    Anyone purchased seats for their Sumo without having to modify due framework around floor pan?

    Why don’t you try Ashley who has trimmed all makes of Cobra’s, he will know what fits.
