Finished My Custom Seat
« on: February 18, 2013, 01:47:07 AM »
I couldn't stand the color or the bulkiness of the original seat on my Indian, so a while back I decided to build a custom seat.  I made a fiberglass seat pan and trimmed it all out,  and then installed a single mounting bolt.   Next I glued down some base foam and then a layer of 2" memory foam.  I then cut out my material from a black canvas seat cover and hand stitched all the seams.  It's kind of rough right now, but I'll clean up all the seams once I have my sewing machine fixed.

You can also see my side mount license plate mount with the '33 Ford Roadster taillight that I installed too. The rear fender is really rough as you can see, but I'm going to be cutting it high and tight and trimming down the fender mounts.  That and the custom paint are in the very near future.   Scottie

Looking good almost ready for one of your nice paint jobs. Is it running well now?  ERC

Thanks!  I don't have it running right yet, unfortunately.  I just don't have $300 to drop on an ignition right now.  I do have everything ready to go to install the ignition once I actually have it, hopefully I'll have it ordered at the beginning of March.  I just might end up painting the bike 1st, I don't know.    :)
