Wow, that really came out nice Chuy!  :)  I like the extra guards and rack. Is that a high back seat, or just stock? I've been thinking of making a high back for my DMC. Yours is looking good, the colors look great too!  8)

Thanks Narada
The seat came with the cozy, yea it sticks out because the cozy is not very deep :)
I enjoy working with metal ,but it takes a lot of time :D

I am new to this forum (like, in the last fifteen minutes) and can't see where I can hit a "like" button to let someone know I enjoy their post or photos so I will simply reply. Very nice work and good looking rig!

I just mounted the same Cozy hack on my RE 650.
Very little travel on the shock when jumping up and down with my 75 Kg weight.  It looks like a car shock, Endurance branded which is an Indian brand, and no markings on the spring.  Then again this is my first outfit, and I do not know how much wheel travel one wants on the hack?

The chair body is suspended on rubber bands, but surely there should be travel in the wheel suspension?
Is yours stiff as a board?

I am tempted to change both shock and spring, but no idea on what is an appropriate spring rate????
