Has anybody tried putting on a flat seat on their sporty ? I found an old 71 honda cb350 seat that I am going to mock up. I like the seats from from the 50's If anybody has done this please post a pic Thanks CW

A Burly Brand "Brat" or Le Pere "Cobra" seat is the closest I've seen to 50's-60's style in a 2-up seat. (1st Post, huh?)

I've been wanting to do this to my Sporty since I got it. I'm 6'5" and want to run mid controls so a higher up flat style seat would be just perfect.

Keen to hear how you get on!
