Would a mean streak seat fit on our bikes? Grant it, the mounting would be different. But would it be too wide or wierd?

I have both bikes and no the MS seat will not fit, completely different shape/size/mounting arrangement.

There are probably more than a couple that would fit, but mounting them (securely) is where some design adjustments would be needed.
Someone here (maybe Hizzo?) mentioned trying to use magnets to hold the seat inplace.

And others have chopped the seat into a solo one, or atleast the passenger backrest cut down, and somehow mounted it, so there's always a way, just that ya got to figure it out.
Doesn't someone here (or maybe that's at Y!) have a Hardley solo seat on their Vulcan? How's that mounted whoever ya are??
