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.

Rick and I stopped by Kevin’s shop to pick up mighty fest tickets (2 posts below) and see how the XS is coming along.
looks awesome. cant wait to see it with the pad.
cool man, r u uholstering the whole thing ?
I like the lines from the back – it looks like it follows the same contour as the tank. Where did you get your stock from? I’ve been playing with the idea of making a seat and all I have are some old road signs (that might work…)
