cheap charlie seat mods.

Post by dg6oo2 » Fri Aug 05, 2011 6:21 am

I got bored so i attacked my seat on my aero and then proceeded to make my own bare bones seat as i do,nt like the factory wide seat as i prefer to sit in the bike rather than on top, the new seat is comfy although for long rides i will probably go back to the stock seat .

Is that a dodge in the garage ? looks like a blues brothers ride.
Why does everything I eat taste like 50 weight ?

Nice job on the seat! I've been contemplating doing something similar for my project. What foam did you use?

You may also appreciate my old Phoenix 400 pillarless. This photo was taken as we were leaving for Ponde (a 3 day music festival) in '85 (when Ponde was still held at Ponde).

I have done an update on my cheap charlie seat as on long rides 300+ kays i would lose the feeling in my backside.So i fitted a set of rubber isolaters from a set of mufflers that i am mucking about with. The added photos are at the end of the previous link , and boy is it more comfortable i think it,s a good alternative to solid mounting the seat.
