I did something similar for my Tiger, but I built an aluminum 'lid' that takes the place of the whole passenger seat, and creates one larger storage area under the seat and where the seat would normally be. I fab'ed brackets so it still attaches and locks like a stock pass. saddle.

That would be a Russell Day Long seat, http://www.day-long.com/ arguably the best in the business. Once past the bar-hopping stage of motorcycle usage, "ugly" is not really concern for a seat. of course, it lacks the blue suede flames sewn into many MoCo and Corbin seats... but hey, there is always a prettier bike parked outside the tavern
