Denise's Purple Seat

From Denise:

Hi Elizabeth, here are the pictures I promised.  I chose not to have extra padding installed in mine.  I had it recovered because the stapled banding was coming undone.  The auto upholstery shop did a much better job in this area and it is tightly stitched and secured to the bottom frame.

Thanks for sharing these with us.  I LOVE the color!

From Elford in Helsinki, Finland:

Chris has a new Travelscoot now which we received from Munich. We have a lot of fun patrolling the neighborhood together. Occasionally we scoot down to the beach and have coffee at a small restaurant there. When we were going up hill, Chris would pass me up. I couldn`t figure why. I thought it was our weight difference. Then I decided to trade batteries without her knowing it. When we went for a ride next she complained that her scooter was a little slower than mine. I told her what I had done. My batteries are over two years old now and hers are brand new. Anyway, when we go out now we both use her new batteries or we both use the old batteries. Then we we go at the same speed.  

Welcome Chris!  It's good to see you and Elford enjoying your TravelScoots together.  My two regular size lithium ion batteries are around the same age as yours and even at my much higher weight I'm still getting great service from them.

Plumping up the padding

This came today from Bee, one of my favorite TravelScooters. She and her wonderful hubby Sarge have had their Scoots for several years.

Hi Elizabeth! Well I got our seats recovered today and they sit really good now, very comfortable. Not fancy, in fact they look almost the same but the leather is nice and the padding is much better. The cost was $35.oo each. Money well spent if you ask me! It was an auto upholstery shop. It took two hours, we left the seats only and did some errands where walking wasn't too bad and went back for them. They used the existing seat as it was and put additional foam on top and then recovered them. I just told them to make them comfortable and to use black. I'm really happy with them and of course we don't use the backs on our scooters so didn't do those.
