Looks like things are starting to come together pretty good as ya start taking things apart.
Certainly makes a big difference in the look.
I had my dirtbike seat re-covered. It was only $30-35. I wouldn't think it'd be too much more than that if you're not having anything fancy done to it.
I just went to a local upholsterer who did the work out of her garage.

At first I was a bit skeptical with what you were planning on doing, but now that I see how things are progressing I like it. Good job!

Had a little time, so I came up with this. I also removed the headlight & gauges and added a set of over/under headlights....

(makes it alot easier with cell pics!!)

I'm not getting this. What is the purpose of the solid bar in place of the shock absorber ? You have left enough of the seat there for a pillion to sit on, but who would want to sit on the back of this now? Ouch. Why not go the whole hog and cut the seat down to a solo, which would look good now you have shortened the rear fender. Alternatively put some shocks back on. Really like the wrapped pipes.
