    After searching for a few months without success I decided to contact some manufacturers. I found one that would reproduce the fabric. His schedule is 6 to 9 months out before he could make it.
    Wanted to put some feelers out there to see if anyone else is interested

    Would definitely be interested in this. It is one of those unobainium things. I know Bambi Girl had possibly located a supplier in China who would have made it a few years back but he had to order 1000mtrs of it.

    Here is where it stands right now.. The manufacturer is about 6 to 9 months backlogged. The fabric will be 60 inches wide, so it will be wide enough to do all across the front and rear bench with little waste. A full replacement of all seats should be around 3 yards( assuming they repeat the pattern every 24") he had guessed at around $200 a yard ( Once I start my restoration I will send him a seat to match colors and pattern and he will be able to get me a exact price) I will be tearing my cruiser down in a month a two.
