Ok guys it was a shit rainy mid day here i have no money to spend but have some time on my hands so went about reshaping my ducktail seat, first picture is when i first put the seat together a while back, the rest are todays attempts, after numerous cover removals and carefully removing the foam at about 8mm a time, i took off over an inch in all , the seat is loosely assembled as in i have not attached the side trim or bent the tab hooks over at the back or cleaned it for that matter and the pictures do not really do it justice as in the flesh i think it looks fantastic i am chuffed to bits
what you fellas recon?


old picture

Hi Pete, cracking job on your seat, that profile looks spot on to me.  I do wonder though if the European bikes had different seat profiles to the US bikes as those I've seen on the site (particularly the unrestored bikes) seem to match the Yamiya seat which is not really like the sculptured seat you have made.

The first two pics are the seat that came on 1010369 when I bought it.....looks exactly like yours doesn't it?  I have since substituted that seat with a better European sourced one which is exactly the same again, but look at the last pic of the Yamiya red foam seat and it's quite different.

You should be proud of that.......great job.

Thanks you marty and mick for the compliments,i was really pleased with the outcome considering how puffy it looked the first time i did it, i have the seat sitting in my conservatory and i sit out there and admire it, there is something about a ducktail seat, that just makes it easy on the eye,
