Hard Shell Recument Seat
 
Anyone know of a supplier for a hardshell recumbent seat? Everything I can find on the net is way expensive!

Welcome.

Do you already have appropriate mounting hardware? If not, what bike do you have? What do you consider way expensive? Are you looking at CF or fiberglass?

Mounting is easy, I'm trying to extend the height of the seat on my Cruzbike Silvio. I'm 6'6" tall. I see seats for recumbents online for $250 - $350! Currently just using a 1/4" plywood "extension" to the top of the seat. Works, just not very elegant. Don't need carbon, inexpensive is good. And actually strength is not a factor, it will be 'backed' by the silvio seat back.

Have you asked the folks at Cruzbike if they have a solution? Yes recumbent seats can be expensive.

Check out these two sites, the first one is on eBay sometimes and I have heard very good reviews on Power-On seats:
