Rear Seat

Just saw this picture posted by a company in Thailand. Their post related to exhaust, x-pipe and fins they had fitted but couldnít help but notice the custom made rear seat that had been added. Fully understand that the Bobber isnít meant to have a rear seat but compared to some of the efforts Iíve seen, at least this one looks reasonable. Having said that, I will never understand why the owner didnít just buy a Speedmaster or T120. But.....this is Thailand.

I love it,

I would love to see the brackets they did.

And I can tell you (at least from my perspective) why a Bobber over a Speedy, the profile of the back end. I just love that mudguard hugging rigid rear frame look.

Thanks for sharing,

Cheerio,

Roy

Just no, ride behind another bobber and you will see the back end bouncing about like a pogo stick, while the floating seat effectively sits there rigid, sit on that pad and you will be in the road on the first bumpy section you hit

================================================== =============
0-60 in .......oh! wait.... I really don't care anymore (but it's still 1200cc of raw throbbing Trumpet so bugger off Mr.Scooter!)

To me that is about as useful as a tit on a bore hog.

All that’s missing is a sticker: “should’ve bought a Speedmaster”.

I think it’s downright dangerous to add a rear seat to a Bobber (even if pegs were added for the passenger’s comfort and safety )
The frame & setup is simply not made for the extra weight.

I should have written "boar hog". It was early when I wrote that. I wasn't fully awake.
