    Greetings All

    I'm hoping someone here can please shed some light on a bit of a situation I have. I own a Big Boy SMR 250, Apollo RX250 in Asian countries and Orion RX250 in Europe. I seem to have lost my seat
    Now what I want to know if theres a similar japanese bike that this bike/frame might have been cloned from? Perhaps I could retrofit the seat onto my ironhorse. I was also thinking of maybe using a sheet of perspex/plastic and moulding it to the shape of the frame and cutting it to fit. My only problem would be the channel on the seat that the bolt on the tank slots into. Unfortunely I can't find a online store that sells this seat apart from ( store.orionmotors.nl/ ) but they want to charge me double the seats value to ship it
    I've attached an image of the bike

    Any advice or leads would be highly appreciated

    I have attempted to order one but they told me the bike was discontinued and there was no longer parts support. So I don't quite know what to do.

    Maybe not the right place (most member here is living in mainland China that don't know much of this export oriented maker)... chinariders.net had more experts dealing with all kinds of weird ??? ...
    Draw a clear draft of exact measurements & where's the bolt hole/ buckle that ensure others find something works
    Worst case u need make something... Most stock base are plastic (often are PP...) Metal/ fiberglass are heard in some diy project...
    Once u had the base, foam & cover is easy peasy...

    Thanks Humanbeing, I've kinda figured im going to need to make one. Either that or i might be able to retrofit a 2005 honda crf or a 2000's Honda cr 250 seat, i think the apollo's frame is based off of the crf/Cr series, so maybe with a little bit of adjustment it would work. I've noticed this frame shares quite a few characteristics of the hondas, perhaps I could fit some red plastics onto it

    Give me more info like true factory name or equal bike in China
    Model code?
    Can have a look on taobao or maybe a CQR bike matches that frame type
