Another way to get an aftermarket seat
I imagine lots of people here are still looking for an aftermarket seat for their bikes. Here's a way I was using before deciding to buy a new one. A few people perked up too:
I searched, country-wide, for VN700's and 750's for sale. Craigs', E-bay, cycletrader, you name it. Once found I would see if the bike had an aftermarket seat. Lots did. I would contact the seller and ask if he/she still had the stock seat. Lots did. I asked them to sell me the aftermarket seat at a reasonable price, put the stock seat back on, keep the sale price of the bike the same, and sell away. They make more money on the deal and you get a nice aftermarket saddle at a reasonable price. It takes some research but its worth a shot...
