very nice,I really like the tailight/ signal setup you have there,I bought the vinyl to two tone my seat,blue and black, I did reshape my seat very similar to yours I just could not find any one to stitch up the cover, actually I wouldn't wait to get it done,I just covered it my self ,yours proves the old saying good things come to those who wait ,nice job.

Denny- I had someone else cover it- I know it wouldn't have turned out like this if i hadn't. Thanks for the compliments though.
Stan- they are from dennis kirk and are not DOT approved. I think they are plenty big though. They are just regular bulbs - that way i didn't have to mess with a new turn signal box. I'm thinking of moving the brake light to right behind the seat instead of just having the back of the seat showing. I think it would blend into the fender better then.

think hard before you move it up close to the seat,I did and you really have to be careful when you start strapping stuff on your seat to no cover up your lights,The back end of my seat looks just like yours I just took the blacl plastic plugs that came in my handle bar ends and plugged the holes in the end of the frame,I wish I had mounted mi taillight a little farther back on the fender,I made a set of brackets from flat aluminum bar that I bought at the local hardware that attaches to the frame underneath the seat

here is my tailight and signal setup that left signal has the bungee pulling it around making it crooked right now and this is how I covered the holes in the fender where the license plate light was,I just pinstriped the design on a bolt on reflector and painted it black and took off the tape when the paint dried,as for the license plate bracket I modified one off a cbr1000RR and mounted it over the stock taillight holes.Gosh that thing is nasty,I guess that is what I get for riding it ,huh?
