It's going on my Bonnie, but its a scrambler seat at heart. I reworked the foam with some gel insert, lost the white piping, ribbed the top, and used a new material over the whole thing. Very comfy, and breathes really nice.
The older I get the more I appreciate a decent seat.

Nice job, Sunshine!

Any chance you could let me know where you got that seat, fenders and tail light? I've seen variations of these parts around, but yours look spot-on. Also, what's the seat like on looooong rides (looks kinda narrow up front)? Is there enough room for a passenger to be comfy with the shorter subframe?

I assume you chopped the back-end yourself and welded on the replacement hoop, right?

Questions, questions!


Cheers,




Michael

Scrambler in the Middle East (Bahrain).

The weather is great for riding here now. The middle of summer was a bit hot (45C+), so I didn't do a lot.

It's camping season here now. Lots of huge Tents in the desert of dust and rocks. No trees or greenery.

Took a couple of shots of my 2012 Scram in the dust. Hope you like. Sorry if they're a bit large.

...and I know you're right! The thing is, I'am kind of tired of buying stuff ``made in Asia``. And I know there's a difference between buying a winter coat or a motorcycle. O.k...I guess I have to say that by Asia, I probably meant China... Still it's a shame we can't buy great bikes that are made on the continent where we live.

From the comments I read here AND the searches I made on several other websites, I have to say I don't see a problem anymore with buying a Thai bike. And one just can't compare a 1985 bike made in the G-B or US with a bike made in Asia (Japan).

Please contact me if you have a pair to sell me. Thanks!

I'm sorry to repeat this comment but I'm still looking for these pipes. Please let me know if you got a pair you'll sell me. Thanks!

I have a complete set of Scram headers + pipes off my carbed '08, barely used. But I'm now in the UK, not the US. I shipped them with me. Where are you?

I live in upstate NY, just above Albany. I appreciate your comment. Is there any chance it's safe to ship your headers back from the UK? I have a feeling that shipment would be rather expensive. I'll shoot you a PM real quick.

One more thought I have..does anyone know if an aftermarket set of headers will hook up properly to my stock silencers?

Arrived in London this morning for a four day business trip. Wanting to get out and get some air, I look at a map to see what's around and discover I'm a ten minute walk from Abbey Road Studios. So that should be worth a walk. Look what's in the parking lot.

I've got stock exhaust pipes for a carbed Scrambler stored in my barn. No offense to the gentleman with the ones in the photo, but mine have no blueing on the pipes. I am in Ohio. If someone has a need for them, drop me a line and we can work something out. I do not have silencers.
