Awesome looking seat. I agree it would be a product that would sell. I usually carry the Harley tail bag behind my Stortz seat because the Harley bag doesn't talk back. LOL
If I change "baggage" I may need one of your seats. :pinch: Later,

That's the way to go for two up riding. Looks good. I like it better than the scrambler looking one I've seen posted here somewhere around here.

new seat

Thank you for the positive comments
I felt that the most difficult part was the (foam) job took awhile to get it right, I also took the long way for the fiberglass as I originaly tought to retain the stock bolting system.
A flat top under the foam as seen on the ebay add is probably the way to go as it will be more easy to attach the foam to the seat with velcro.
This one was a one shot only, I never tought about production, but I guess I could make some more.

The more I look at that seat the more I like it, but in my world I would like to be able to do a quick change from a single seat rear and when needed a quick change to this new pillion seat. It looks bloody good. :tank:

new seat

The driver seat is at the same location as stock, I'm not sure about the quality of the foam over time but right now it is more comfortable than stock, removing the new seat and bolt back the original one takes less than 5 minutes.

Excellent!

Hey Dusty,

Beautiful job on the seat. I don't know what you normally do for a living but I can think of something new you can do if you don't like your day job!

You really should consider a short production run on these seats and see where it takes you.

Again, beautiful job.

Congratulations,

Rick
