Default C&C Seat Decision

Thought I had a dicision made on my new seat but it's a tough one and if anyone has any of these seats I'd like to hear any pros and cons.
I really like the looks of the Lopro Solo or possibly it's 2up counterpart tho not for it's ability to carry a passenger so much as it's appearance and the way it flows with the fender.

However, the regular Solo and it's 2up counterpart would undoubtedly be better for comfort with the extra 2" lumbar support. I'm mainly concerned with sliding back all the time on hard take offs and accels with the Lopro. Basically staying put. With the regular Solo I would really be leaning towards the 2up more than the Lopro because of how it dives off in the back if ya get what I mean.

So if you have any experiences with any of these, I'd like to hear about it as I'm ready to pull the trigger and order one like now.

Appearance wise, I like the Lopro better. Solo or 2up. Tho the regular Solo or 2up are not ugly by any means. Comfort wise I'm sure it tops the Lopro.

Also, do you think blue stitching would go with my current color? I have tentative plans of a custom paint job tho it may be quite some time but it would be along the lines of a deep but bright blue. Or should I stick with black stitching if I do any?

Thanks!

I'd match the stitching to the tank emblems.

The 2-up LoPro is SWEET!! Even tho my wife doesn't ride with me anymore, I still prefer a 2-up seat. I think the Solo looks better on a "bobbed" rear fender.

That's my thinking too. I like the way the 2up flows. It's only good as a 2up seat in very short say emergency runs. Like picking up the cutie on the hiway whose car broke down.

I would've thought more people would saddle up with these seats given the awesome good looks and customization available. Not to mention the rider positioning which can also be altered when they're being made. Another inch back or up to 3 inches forward as well as height. Leather or marine grade vinyl or combination of. Even some exotic leathers. Different designs and colors of stitching. Great personalized construction and customer service and all at a fair price.

I like the mustang daytripper. if it was me I would get the tapered front and put the retro tank on (the 48?). matching stitching suggestive of gender dysphoria.

No, the C&C seats are tops In my book. Just a question of which one. In fact over at the other forum there are quite a few that say the C&C seats are just as comfortable if not more so than mustangs. Especially the Fastback/squareback/sport tour. Nothing wrong with mustang seats tho. Some of the better seats out there.
Appearance wise, rider positioning, craftsmanship, customer service, it's definitely C&C. They will custom position as well for a price of course.
I've decided to go with the Fastback in leather with carbon fiber sides and red flame stitching.
I may even get a Lopro Solo down the road for those days I just want that bad a$$ look.
Definitely the best looking solo out there imo. Maybe with an embossed insert.

I really like some of the spring solos too. I'm just not informed enough to know what kits etc. Or how to get the looks I'd want along with the best ride.

I just ordered the fastback in smooth leather. No stitch pattern. $380 shipped.

Almost forgot about the 10% forum discount which makes it $342 shipped. Should be done by Wednesday.

As it comes, it will sit you an inch lower and an inch back from stock. The lumbar can be moved forward up to 3 inches or back an inch if You want tho.You can also get it to raise instead of lower the rider. Just let them know when you order.
I don't think any other seat can compete with the customization C&C Seats offers.
Not to mention the stitch patterns available in any color thread you want.
Smooth leather or Mercedes leather. Smooth or Mercedes vinyl.
If you really want to get crazy they offer different types of exotic leather like alligator but that's some serious cash.
