Very nice indeed Mar-Vel,

No if only a company would make a set up that actually worked, I would be al over it.

Well done!

Cheerio,

Roy

Excellent! Love the look. How did you do that?

Now you need the copper colored "Triumph" seat badge. (I just installed it on my bike a few minutes ago.)

Love that look. I’m hoping someone will come out with one that is real. They can take my money right now.

Yeah If somebody got an actual working sprung seat Id be all over It too , I think It would have to be a flat seat though instead of the dish type for It to work . still we live in hope...Thanks for the compliments tho guys mush appreciated .

Looks great. I’m planning on doing something similar. I think the traditional looking sprung seats add so much to the looks.

I was pondering on a Fox shock inthe interest of improved rider comfort, but baulked at the ticket pricearound $800. Maybe swap out with a repro vintage Triumph Lycett seat and springs. Looked the part butmy body is too weary to endure hours on that saddle contour. And then I got to thinking.........why not?


Referring to the images of myhastily prepared Photo-shop montage. Looks like the seat could bemodified to convert into a floating sprung seat without too much ado. Half thework already done if you remove the front tang secured by the single Torxbolt.
Just my slant on an improvement, youdon't have to agree with my logic or motive.
