    Question Has anyone tried a cafe solo seat?

    Hiya,
    I'm thinking about going down the route of putting a café solo seat on the bike. Has anyone done this? Can you direct me to a website showing the conversion already done etc.
    thanks,
    Tezza

    Hi Tezza I'm going the cafe race route with my XG I've sourced some rear sets and seat, but the seats work out at about £750.00 with package and duties. you could try "complete cafe racer" a British company that do seats,clip on's etc.

    Thanks Chris, Coo bit OTT £750
    I've looked at Leathermen saddles in the US Which absolutely are the biz' Forgot all about duties tho' thanks. Probably saved me from "sorry your cards been declined".
    HARLEYS (no relationship to H.D). shop in Blackpool seem to have most things and lots cheaper than going down the buying from H.D. route. I will look at CCR tho' see what goodies I can find. Thanks again,
    Good hunting for bits for yours,
    Tezza

    No worries I've made a new belt drive cover and am working on a front sprocket cover as I think HD's plastic is hideous, I'm thinking of doing a few sets plus I'm developing a rack as well....I'll be posting photo's of them.

    Steve, hadn't thought of changing the foam n such. Lots of people do this, but it never entered me swede, more food for thought.....
    Foundation Garments mmmmm, takes me back to the 60's when the sap was rising and a young man's fancy often turned to the Grattans Catalogue.... the amount of times I had to peel the pages open with a fish knife....before me old lass gave the 'logue back to the next door neighbour....lol
    cheers mate,
