Just wanted to say that I installed a new seat cover on my bike and it was really not hard at all and I got great looking results. I was a little skeptical and almost paid an upholstery shop to do it for me but I am glad I didn't. In case anybody is wondering, yes you can do it using a good manual staple gun. I'm sure an electric or pneumatic gun would work even better...but don't think it can't be done with a manual staple gun. Just wanted to spread the good news to those who may be on the fence about doing the job like I was.
