I think John Deere makes what you're looking for...

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

Mustang makes a W I D E version of their solo..... how wide a seat does anyone need?

Even if your ass is two feet across you don't need a seat that wide

Default ANY seat will work on anything. Maybe not a bolt-on, but you can...

...adapt and improvise.
Only you kow the look that you want.
