December 18, 2011, 12:21:22 pmI'm not sure what I'm going to do with the seat. The rear loop for the seat mount is really the problem. It's too wide for most of my ideas. I can saw it off and weld a tapered loop back there so as to retain the fender mounts. I originally want just a tapered seat section back there, but it would look weird keeping the width. Thinning the rear foam down making it look a lot lower would be a possibility. I'm not really concerned with passenger seating. I'm not sure which way to go at this point.

December 18, 2011, 10:08:53 amSince we seem to be heading down similar roads style wise, I wanted to try a triumph-style flat bench seat. Just a few inches of padding. I think it might run into issues lining up right, considering the rear fender sits high. But I think that could look really cool. Just flat. Maybe there passenger part is gutted underneath to be barely anything. I only carry on occasion. You think you'll retain a passenger spot? That'll make difference on your direction.
