Instead of opening another thread I add on one more seat related question here.
Finally got the HD solo springer seat on my 48. Still have to get used to the new seating position. What is a bit a problem in my case is that the new position moved quite a bit further to the front so my long legs have not that a relaxed position on the foot pegs anymore.
On a bike somewhere here on the forum I saw this setup
Seems to be the same HD solo springer seat but with another mounting at the back. This makes it sit much lower and I assume the seating position will be moved further back again as well.
In comparison my current setup - although seen from a slightly different angle - looks much higher up and more 'flat' if you compare the angle.
Any idea how the other setup works? Maybe the actual owner is around as well?
To me it looks like they just removed the hairpin springs and replaced them with rubber stoppers. A lot of guys do this because it's unlawful to mount a spring seat on a bike with rear suspension! HaHa
