cb650 seat – welding part 01

New seat is 1/2 of the way welded.

Pic below is a mock-up of it on the bike with a seat pad …just so you you can get an idea of what it’ll actually look like on the bike.

I got all the pieces to fit almost perfectly.

Then I spot welded it together…

Then I welded the whole thing together… until I ran out of gas.

Next, I need to finish welding, trim the excess shit off… Grind everything smooth, then make my mount brackets. Then get my seat pad made.

    Great stuff, if the mock up is any indication this will be well worth the effort

cb500t seat part 3 of 3

Got the cowl welded up and excess cutoff. Still needs some more final shaping with the hand file and then it’s ready for paint!
