Looks like the seat off of a mean streak. You could search ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/2002-2008-Ka...70481b&vxp=mtr

At first I was going to say a shadow, but then I thought I had seen that bike in the "Show me your vn" thread and that he said it was a mean streak seat. Plus the seat on the meanie should be pretty close to fitting on the front end with just a bolt needed for the back.

There are several Meanie owners on here so one of them should be able to shed some light as to whether it is the stock version for that bike.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Heres a picture of the vn900 seat. That one doesn't even begin to have the same shape, passenger area is totally different.

The ops pic is of a 1600 meanstreak seat, however, the vn900 custom has a similar style seat.

You can get that look with a meanstreak seat, however if your a bigger or taller guy you may not like it as it will push you about an inch closer to the tank. As jared added the vn900 custom has that look as well, not sure if it will allow more room or not though. I personally will be going with the vn900 custom seat.

I'm on the lookout for either of the two! Couple good deals on seats with tips on eBay, if you don't mind recovering the seat for those of you who are looking!
