Thanks for the compliment buffaloborn, the seat is a plain solo sportster seat that I got when I bought the bike, as well as a set of saddle bags and a windshield (bike came with OEM seat). When these pics were taken I had nothing but a U-bolt holding the front tongue in place and a single bolt for the rear tab that went down through the rear fender. It was fine for a few short trips up and down the road for a mock-up, but I wouldn't trust it on any long rides. I'm debating if I should trim down the original seat pan and toss the sportster foam at it to see what happens. I just haven't made up my mind yet as I also really like whats going on with the bike below.
