So finished the seat pan mod, before getting the upper back.

Is this mod just for aesthetics?

I'm looking forward to seeing the reassembled final product. Looks interesting so far, but I'm curious about how the underside of the upholstered seat will look.

Its just some aesthetics, the under side of the seat which fits to pan is moulded plastic in black, still considering putting something between, but the pan has drain holes if it gets wet, and as the bottom of the actual seat is plastic, no problems. As the bike comes together it may become clearer.

Perhaps you should put some grids between the plastic of seat and metal pan to have a nice look.

I will wait until I have the 2 pieces back together, and decide how I would like the inside to look. the under side of the seat is quite geometrical, but I may also put a slice of high density foam in between seat and pan. Later......

You could have some wicked lights under there....they would show up well with the angle of the seat pan.

I am considering to put some LED inside the pan, with some additional holes along the back edge, watch this space later.
