Nice!

Do you have any more pics of the solo seat? Maybe some of the installation?

Seat is a Denfeld original, for passenger that is mounted on a rack. I haven't mounted yet, is only a mock up I did for the pic.

I have been asking around the guys in Boxerschmiede and BMWbayer and since welding on a frame makes it harder to get the TUV in Germany, what they do is drill the frame (under the tank portion) using some parts of the seat bracket.

So, in other words, I still have to figure it out...

"Our first project is this BMW. The main idea was to get a comfortable riding bike with a cool look trying not to spend a lot of money (that’s what i call “Low Cost Custom”) so we go for Scrambler style with a high handlebar, solo seat and off-road tyres…After 3 months, that’s the result. The first Fuel Motorcycle. The BMW R 100 “Scram”. Hope you like!"

PS (this bike has been posted before on this forum)

Looks to be a Denfeld Police seat. There is one on e-bay - (not mine, I don't know the seller.)
