Ha.  It really is nice.  It's a Retro Moto seat.  Joon-yah made it for the 750.  It came as part of the trade for that bike.

Yep, lengthen it out to stop above the tire and call it a day. I like it.

Working on a few fairing designs. Start with a foam master, coat in Aqua-resin, cast and glass.

Take a rasp to the high points, sand. I like the stick on sanding discs. The hold. a curve well so they're as good as a block around contours.
Ready for another coat...
