A newbie hello.
« on: March 17, 2010, 06:03:27 PM »
Well, not quite a newbie.  I will be picking up my bike at the begining of next monthe.  I am in New Rochelle, NY and I will be getting a G-5 Military model. 

I have a question, being a newbie I would of course have a question.  What rear seat fits this model?  I need a seat my wife will like.  Needs springs you know.


Thank you,

Sam

Hi Ragmas,
 
 Welcome aboard.  Please post pics when you get your bike.

 This seat fits the C5's http://www.enfieldmotorcycles.com/forum/index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=2603 and I think the G5's use the same seating as the Electra's
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Well it seems life has reared its ugly head and I have to hold off on my purchase.  I just called the dealer and cancelled my order. 

Someday I will have one but not now.

OK, so I am picking my bike up this Wednesday providing the weather is decent.  Things change fast. 

Question.  I would like to get a sprung pillion seat for my wife.  What seat will fit the G5 military model?

Sam

Or should I just get her her own bike?

Hi Ragmas,
 Glad to hear your Bullet is back on as so to speak.
Mines an Iron Barrel so I'm not certain what fits your for sure.
If one of our forum brothers or sisters can't answer in time you could always call CMW.

REgards,
Ice

Welcome, you know we need pictures of your new bike!
