Ear shave pics

can anybody pointme to some good pics of a shaved bike. I haven't found any. Prob not looking int he right place. I've got some other ideas about the ears but still not sure wat I want to do.
Took a 200+ mile trip today on "Daisy" , Longest trip so far. foynd out I need to get a diff seat. Took a trip to St.Louis this weekend in wifes van (3Hr trip) and it didnt hurt my rear. How do ya think a seat from Pontiac Montana would look on my bike?

heres that pontiac seat u wanted...

the seat can be a lil rough on long distances ... done a couple 1000 mile trecks... it helps when u have a back rest and forward controlls and highway pegs to change positions and reduce hot spots... they also make good seat gell pads... though a new seat is expencive there are a few to chooose from...

but the second ride is better then the first and all in all its not to bad if u stop a couple times a fill up ... stop tak a pic enjoy the scenery

Thanks for the pics guys, my bike is in 1985 stock form so I'm getting ideas of how to make her style my own. Wife told me I couldn't barrow a seat out of the van to fit on my bike.LOL, altho I think it would look real sweet.. ACCT rebuild kit came today, but since I changed the oil the chains are quiet. The guy I got the bike from came by today to drop off the "custom" pipes he had for her. They weren't what I was expecting , but I might be able to do something with them.
