WTB: Trash stock seat

I'm looking for something I can cut on and not feel bad about ruining. I want to shave the backrest but I've never done work like that before so it'll be a... uhh... learning experience.

Lmk what you have and what you want for it. Thanks.

Hey new rider that is a comfortable looking seat without the water collecting, butt hammer buttons.

I see three other things in the second picture that interest me.
-1. What is that rear signal light? Looks like it has a lens both front and back. Off an older truck??

-2. I can only see part of one side of the luggage rack, but it does not look wide enough to be Ma Kaw's Fire & Steel rack.

-3. Looks like you have a set of Knifemaker designed rear footboards too.

Any chance of getting a few pictures to show off these items more clearly?

TIA
