There are many threads on how to make your own seat so thats always an option. Its simple to do and very cost forgiving when you compare it to purchasing a new or even used Corbin seat. Floor boards as stated above if you dont care to make your own and as for a bigger tank well you will have to custom fit one. Fab up some brackets and the Royal Star tunnel is close to the same as our VN750's and will work.

Peace

Here is a pretty good write up and pics of another forum member here that made hius seat. I completed mine a while ago with the same over all thoughts as this guy did. I will have to admitt though that mine turned out better cause I did have a heat gun to stretch the vinyl when I stapled mine up. Anyways here is the link

Or what da heck, I happen to have two spare seats that I wanted to do something with, I can cut one down and make you a custom job like the one in the above posted thread for, I dunno, hows $250 plus shipping? I would use memory foam for the ass area and marine vinyl with your choice of color (black or black). I can take a few pictures of mine to give you referance to my work if you like. Let me know!

Peace

Hey, Jerseychris! Sorry for the slow reply to your email, but flitecontrol bought the Mustang off me last month. However, unless I missed it, he hasn't posted that it's the best seat since sliced bread, so you might check with him about reselling (as well as follow up on wkrizan's offer).

How much snow did you get today??

Well it's just been a few days since I got the tank back on and I've gone about 200 miles on the Mustang seat versus 2 on the stock seat. Really don't have much to compare it too, but my behind isn't complaining and I plan on keeping it. Thanks, Cindy.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

that would be fantastic man, what a great help! i would love to see pics first, the ones that i saw of the other guys look good. 250 is reasonable. just let me know and i'll send out the money order or check as soon as i get my refund...lol.
It's ok Crobins, it was my fault for taking so long...things just kept coming up, and had to take a last minute flight back down south...anyway, sorry for the trouble...and thanks for everything...
