Seat mod

I'm thinking of doing a seat modification on my bike and I've seen a couple of other bikes on here that look fantastic. I'm looking to get rid of the passenger backrest and blend the seat into the rear fender. Any suggestions ?

I have the same ultimate goal. But I've decided that I'm going to try to find a used seat on Epay to do my experimenting on it. I don't think it would be that hard to do, just take some TLC and creativity.
