NEW SEAT FROM LEGENDARY!!
« on: October 04, 2013, 12:43:56 AM »
LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK!?

the seat is the phat tail from legendary motorcycles (fiberglass).
I made a new seat subframe, its not done yet.
might take and inch down or two haha.
very comfortable like it is though im 6'2 so the higher seat is awesome.
Im worried the hight will throw the bike into a slide when im turning though.

I plan on covering it up with sheet metal and putting the electrics in  the hump!

It has a nice shape for a cafe bike, but it seems to be sitting a little bit too high for my liking.
Too much empty space between the tire and the seat, I think.
Otherwise, nice.

I agree with Ace.  Looks nice but it's sitting to high up.

I used to have it on flat.

It felt so wide and hard when i sat down at red lights.  it made me bow legged lol.  I felt it was to wide, or something. 

But, I just sat on it this night for the first time and i don't feel that anymore.  because its on a slight angle it kind of alleviates the issue i was having.

Don't get me wrong I really appreciate the constructive criticism.  Especially from a well known guy like Ace!

Thanks, it will be done within a couple days.
If the hight becomes an issue ill be sure to chop some meat off the seat frame.

Not so unusual looking.  Looks like the sport bikes now.

i like it.  it transformed how the electra performs on the turns.  i think its a very nice home made cafe electra. i think this winter i may paint the frame white and the rest jet black with white pin striping.
