Switching to a solo seat
Sometime this spring I am getting my old 750 back from my buddy who is quitting riding. (Why he's quitting is a whole nuther issue!) It's a little beat up and and I can't get as much for it as it is worth to me so I am going to keep it in the "stable" and play with it instead. I really want to try and mount a solo seat, and maybe chop the rear fender to give it a bobbed look, and also maybe get some shorter shocks to lower the rear a little. I'm fat enough to lower it some without any help!!
I am not much of a fabricator, so I will have to get some help with this. I do know a really good welder who would help me. From you guys that have done this, what kind of support did you add to support the seat? I assume it has to be mounted to the frame and not the fender. Anyone have a picture of this?
Also, when looking for a solo seat to use, what kind or brand has worked? I have seen a couple of mustang solo seats from Harleys on Craigslist, but they are pricey and I didn't want to jump on one unless I knew it would probably work.
