Solo Seat

I知 looking to swap out my meanstreak seat for a solo seat. I was wondering if anyone here has tried one of the kits off of eBay, as it appears that none of them have the bracket that mounts under the seat, where you attach the springs to.

I cut the original seat and made some clips to bolt to the side of the frame.
