Have just bought a new Honda Scoopy White Prestige and would love to personalize it a bit, replace seat with a leather one closer to a Vespa type feel, perhaps add back rest, some sort of rack, grips etc. does anyone know somewhere in Bangkok (ideally Sukumwit area but mot necessarily so) that can do. Have seen lots of great looking modded Finos but not Scoopy.

On Suttisarn Road, there are a few saddle repair / modify shops that can do amazing things, while still not being expensive...
I'm sure that they have no real leather on stock, but I'm sure they can work with real leather of +/- 2mm thickness as a friend let them rebuild a saddle of a classic motorcycle with real leather. The end result was unbelievable, it looked better than buying a new one.
The shops in Suttisarn have lots of experience with Honda seats, as you cannot walk in or they are working on somebodies Honda PCX saddle which they reshape so it is more comfortable for larger people.
