Garbone: thanks for the pix.  Your frame is different than mine.  I was sent two mounting types of mounting brackets, a bag of nuts and bolts... No instructions.  Neither bracket puts the spring where it needs to be in relation to the seat.

Figured it out after some head scratching.  Simple fix, drilled spring mount hole where I need them. How's it look?









Next up... rear seat or rack.

Special thanks to Joe for the guidance.

Looks great!
On the eighth day God created the C5, and it was better looking than anything on the planet.

Looks very nice but yeah, you need a rack or seat to cover those frame rails.

I agree.  I been thinking this one over.  It would be nice to have some storage.  Going to stop by the Army surplus store and see what I can find.  A low profile metal box would do the trick.  Stay tuned...
