Motobins /5 solo seat?

I was thinking about getting the solo seat for my /5 and I wanted to see if there was any feedback on the seat as far as comfort, fit and quality. While I am at it, are there any other solo seats for the /5?.........thanks

I sourced one from bmweuro (Chris) but I have no idea if Motobins was the original source. That said, it is quite comfortable and I could easily see spending many hours on it at a time.

I got my solo from Hucky. It's pretty comfortable, but there's not much scoochin room for when you want to hug the tank for us tall guys. Makes sense considering they were designed for police use.

Chris,
What is the difference between the two?

Stephenie Meyer in Germany reputedly sell good seats. The seats sold by Motobins have a plastic seat pan.
Meyer seats are reportedly better quality. They sell on the eBay.com site.

Was looking at the Stephanie Meyer seats and the 1971 bench seat (two grab handle style) is not right. The foam is the wrong shape. I suppose no one makes it in the original lower profile shape as the OEM seat instead just copying the shape from the later 72 models?
