well i had a stock seat sitting right in front of me and i was thinking how uncomfortable my desk seat is soooooooo



i was actually think about making these and selling them, just a feeler but would anyone be interested in one? prices on shipping might be killer but they won't cost that much maybe 75 bucks depending on how the junk yard would like to rape me on seat prices

Do you know how long ive been looking for a decent crx seat for that exact purpose? Man I cant find one for a decent price in houston that has less thana 2 inch cut on the sides that are within a reasonable price AT ALL.

Gg though!

Really? thers a junkyard here with 2 88 Si seats in it, no tear but the foam is a litte rotted underneath for $50, both seats. I was gonna pick em up but they got rained on a few times because someone couldnt close the doors when they got done molesting it for parts.

I've wanted to do that too. How did you mount it to the base? More pics! This would be perfect for Forza Motorsport with my MadCatz II racing wheel for Xbox!

alot of beating the **** out of the bottom of the seat to make it line up with the angle of the stock brackets on my old desk chair and then i bolted the bracket right to the seat

i would have done somthing like a racing bucket like on "Redlined" but i really don't have the cash to waste lol

What exhaust are you running on that thing, it's huge!

anyway, check this out. I'm going to make one of these for forza, and a friend is giving me a couple EG seats for free, and we have a nice Momo wheel already. I've wanted to do that swivel chair thing for a while, how does it feel? Feel bad doing it with an Si seat, they are so nice and getting hard to come by.

I liked this so much I started making one for myself today. Ive finished the frame, just have to test fit and mount the seat, pedals and wheel. I'll try to get some pictures up soon... Oh, and I've only got $7.04 invested in it.

My design is basically the same, only Im using one of these babies as the seat:



haha, that's where the $7.04 came in... Wal-Mart!!!

Mine isnt going to "collapse" as much as the Bob Earl one, simply 'cause I used what I had... I only had 14" lengths of 1.25" tubing. And right now the wheel only has distance adjustment, not height adjustment...but I may change that tomorrow. I had a bunch of 16" x 9" Us already made from 1" square tubing, so I used those too.

I want to incorporate some kind of place to mount my mini-ps2 on there too, so all I'll have to do is plug in the AC and RCAs and I can take it wherever I want.

The ultimate setup would be mounting an LCD TV on this thing...it'd be just like the arcade then, and you could play it anywhere.

Go buy a nice office chair! I'm still trying to find some OEM seats for my CRX and here are you people making all sorts of toys out of your spares! :(

Cool setups some of ya have though.
