Hi, this seat was in my new project, the guy i bought it from told me it was a Paddy Hopkirk seat.
Can anybody shed any light on this.. and is it worth owt ?
It has a small tear as you can see.
Thanks

Sorry about the funny angle :shy:

Similar to a contour 6 seat but it isn't one and i haven't seen a paddy hopkirk seat like it so can't really give a good valuation but with the tear and general condition can only see if being around £50

What year is the project? Probably not very wise to correlate them though..

Where did it say in the OP about the seat being for sale ?
It was clearly asked if anybody knew what seat it was and if it was worth anything.

Well we may as well scrap the valuations area then as the generic answer to any question is "As much as someone is prepared to pay or offer for it"!!

It is difficult to tell from one picture but maybe a microcell one and worth what I offered to me in that condition as repair costs for old age hardened vynl can be massive as you end up replacing most of it.

What ever it maybe to do with you other than a fellow S.C.M.C member !!!!

Ok :dontgetit: i thought the valuations section was for valuations and the for sale section for selling. Clearly my mistake.









Oh yes....... She's my wife, thats what it has to do with me :lol:
