  • Raised the seat

    I had my welder son fabricate some bits to raise my seat about 2 inches. I'm 6'9" and the regular seat height puts my knees above my hips. It was finally starting to wear on me after 50,000 miles. I like the look of this. Reminds me of a 40's Harley with the seat over the tank. This is the way everybody used to ride!

    You should find an old H-D Buddy seat. That would put you up there.

      I love that buddy seat but they are hard to find without a bike underneath them.

    Wow! Great job. You make that bike look small!

      When I saw that picture I asked my wife if the bike really looks that small. She just nodded her head. I had never seen a picture with me on the bike before.

      Yeah, it is so striking that it looks Photoshopped.

    Funny you say that. I bought a Suzuki 550L a few years back as a "do I still like riding" purchase. My wife said I looked big on it. This explains what she was saying. Ad long as you can make it fit you to your satisfaction it doesn't matter what the rest see.

      Yeah that really looks little on you. Aren't your legs cramped too? I'm not as tall as you but now I want to see what I look like on mine. Ride on...

          You need to install floor board extensions to allow a little more leg room. It looks like yours are mounted in the stock position.

            Do you have any pics of what it looks like underneath? I feel my seat is a little low also and wouldn't mind seeing how it was done.
