Seat mod for tall riders

After years of having a sore butt and dealing with a low seat (Tall Rider 6'5") This added 4" to the seat height.I Found a Harley Police seat at a swap meet $20.00. Bolted to my old seat. Nice fat seat added to the OEM seat!!
Also added a bracket for a backrest used 1/4" X 2" bar stock which bolted to the Harley seat. Had to bend and fab the bracket Tapped a quick screw disconnect to make it removable. Back rest is Harley again Swap meet. This was pricy $20.00. Had local shop cover seat. Not bad $150.00
Yes the investment was well worth it!!!! I can ride all day with out a sore butt and no back pain!
