Aftermarket and modified seats comparison *Pic Thread*

I pretty routinely see request about different seats for the VN 750. I thought it would be good to make a thread showing all the different seat options so that people can come to one place to compare and see what they like. So please post your aftermarket and modified stock seats with some info on mounting or modifications.

This is my seat. Its a Mean Streak seat, purchased from a fellow member. It changed the whole look of the bike, and made it more comfortable to me. Id rate it as easy to install, I spent about $5 on some nuts, bolts and washers, and drilled a couple of holes.

Looks a lot like a stock 2004 and later sportster seat. I have a brand new one and you can find them on craigs list for $50 all day every day. Yours might have more bend in it though.
