RE: Poor Man's Bobber Fender
@maustarman...haha duude. I tried to take your advice and build my own solo seat.

The results?

Dear. God.

I obviously have zero seat fabrication skills. Long story short, I cut the stock seat in half, tried to mate it to a harley davidson solo seat...sooo vstar seat pan and low profile harley cushion...and then trid to wrap it all back up in the stock leather. stapled the shit out of it and threw it on the bike.

yyyeah. My wife looked at it and said it looked EXACTLY like a butthole.

A giant. butthole.

lol, it looks like I'll be shelling out 400 bucks to get a cookie cutter solo seat set up!!

hahahah!!

ahh sorry I missed the last couple of comments. No pics fellas sorry, I was so embarassed by the butthole seat that I chucked it asap.

After 2 other iterations of trying to build a solo seat, I gave up and I JUST ordered a La rosa kit. $240 for the conversion bracket, springs, and 13" seat...done and done. I almost dropped nearly $500 at blue collar bobbers site, thank goodness I did a last minute google search!

Along with that I finally ordered teh site mount license plate and also 5" control extensions for more leg room. $50 bucks off of ebay. I'll be sure to snap pics this time around!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!
