Hi Mate,

Welcome to the forum and congrats on your new ride.

Wilbers (or similar) is a must in my opinion. Also a sprung seat is an option. As to the latter, I'm in the final stages of my sprung seat project.

Cheerio,

Roy

Welcome and congrats. As far as the tailbone issue, you'll find lots of solutions here. Clearly a rear shock might be in order. All kinds have been tried here and reviewed. Also, maybe a better seat, like a Corbin.
Good luck on finding the right combination.

Welcome to the forum.
For me, the stock seat was torture and tailbone pain was excruciating.
A Corbin seat played a major part in solving the issue and the Wilbers helps smooth the ride.
If I had to do (very) long trips on the Bobber, I would recommend visiting a professional builder/upholsterer to see if they can hollow out an area to totally relieve tailbone pressure. Though with the shape of the seat, it may be a challenge.
Good luck and I hope you find the right setup.

I had mine torn apart and rebuilt to my design with gel pads by Saddlecaft in the UK...it's made an incredible difference at considerably less cost than a replacement saddle.
