cb650 seat – finally on the bike
The seat isn’t finished yet. But at least it’s on the bike now.
It’s rubber-mounted in 4 spots, distributing my weight, so I’m hoping the seat doesn’t vibrate to death and break itself apart. Fingers-crossed.
Made some gusset brackets for the mounting hinges. Good idea adam. They look cool.
License plate… crotch rocket style. Right now it’s zip-tied there (and crooked). I need to make some sort of actual real bracket.
This is what’s left:
– Grind off the excess shit on the seat, and clean it up.
– Paint the underside. Boeshield T9 the top.
– Get my seat pad made by J&J auto upholstery. I think it’ll soften the hard edges of the seat.
– Rig up my tail light. Riding dirty, and sketchy right now w/o one.
