Try to find a store that carries car upholstery, headliners, etc... I had a buddy a few years back who recovered my 87 750 seat, did an awesome job. He did the back portion with a really soft foam and stitched it to act as the solo cover, when I had a passenger they just climbed on and the soft foam squished down. Good luck.

I recovered mine using marine grade vinyl,any of your local fabric stores should stock it.Marine vinyl will have less fading due to UV light and is less susceptable to water damage.

Its simple to do:
-Lay the new vinyl in the sun to make it more pliable
-Remove the staples from your seat pan,be careful not to rip the existing cover
-Use the old seat cover as a template and trace it out on the new vinyl,I cut about a 1/2" extra just in case.
-stretch the vinyl over the seat foam and place a few staples in it,a staple gun is a must.
-use a heatgun/hairdrier to keep the vinyl flexable and continue to work it into the shape of the seat

I recovered both of mine in about 2.0 hrs,cost was $4.00 for materials.
I can shoot some pics tomorrow if you'd like
