I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the seat. The rear loop for the seat mount is really the problem. It's too wide for most of my ideas. I can saw it off and weld a tapered loop back there so as to retain the fender mounts. I originally want just a tapered seat section back there, but it would look weird keeping the width. Thinning the rear foam down making it look a lot lower would be a possibility. I'm not really concerned with passenger seating. I'm not sure which way to go at this point.

And I also wanted to say I think how you shortened the rear fender looks PERFECT.  It's a really nice line - much more so than the factory line, I believe.  I'm really itching to follow suit.

Since we seem to be heading down similar roads style wise, I wanted to try a triumph-style flat bench seat.  Just a few inches of padding.  I think it might run into issues lining up right, considering the rear fender sits high.  But I think that could look really cool.  Just flat.  Maybe there passenger part is gutted underneath to be barely anything.  I only carry on occasion.  You think you'll retain a passenger spot?  That'll make difference on your direction.
