Honda magna seat on my vn750

So, I wanted to use the seat I got from the Honda magna, and be able to put it on my vn750.

I made a set of fender supports, and a crossmember with a latch for the pin on the back of the seat. This way, I can pull the crossmember off and use my solo seat if I want.

This was not measured or planned much. I just threw it together this past 6 hours. Going back out to cut the excess off, round it off, clean and paint it.

We don't mind you putting a Magna seat on your Vulcan, crowley, but you would be blaspheming the god of fire to advertise it by leaving that big white HONDA brand uncovered on the back!! lol

I guess you are *stuck with electrical tape or black duct tape then.
*Sorry but the pun is intended!

The thing though is even with a blacked out Honda emblem on a Honda people still know its a Honda

Doc tape works much better than duct tape
