Airtech CR3502FL seat on a '73?
« on: August 29, 2017, 03:07:16 PM »
Has anyone tried this fibreglass seat on an RD? I've mocked one up out of cardboard - it seems to fit and even lose an inch or so off the nose to bring the hump closer to my backside (still need about 2" of padding for me to 'lock-in' to it). I need to move the weight a forward where I can!
I'm sticking with the round tank so any comments on this or other options before hit 'pay now' would be appreciated.

no replies but over 300 views so i'll keep it rolling. arm in a sling so excuse lack of caps.
the fibreglass arrived and looks like a good fit.
i've cut the bracket off that poked up between the 3 m6 threaded holes.
i'll reinforce the base with aluminium sheet turned up at the front (to keep the fuel tank on) and rear (to protect the fibreglass from the frame turn-up at the back).
the aluminium should give me a base to accommodate the kink where the top frame rails kick up. any suggestions?

Is there any chance of a photograph (I appreciate it might be difficult using one hand)
I'm finding it hard to visage
