My recent embellishments for your comments

Welcome to weigh in with your critique on my additions, good, bad or indifferent.


OEM seat bar was modified to full floating which required some machining, a shim and a sleeve on the left side mount aside from removing the front bolt altogether. Still undecided as to which way I'll go with securing the springs to the seat. Vertical or inclined, which looks better?


Too many pix for this post. More below.


Enjoy.

Looking good and certainly a neat variation on the original theme.

Some cool mods for sure. But I looked at the pics of your seat two and a half hours ago and my butt still hurts.

Hi Retro,

Looks fabulous, well done.

Love the finish on the seat and also the springs (vertical is my preference). A sprung seat is on my to-do list.

Keep up the good work..

Cheerio,

Roy

Looks good man! Vertical for sure, the angled ones look like somethings broken.

Retro,

Where did you get those springs with the 'curl' for attaching directly to the bolt???

Cheerio,

Roy

Looks great Retro! That last one is in my wallpaper collection now

Can you say some more about the power connector you show in the second set of pix?
