Decided against the tracker seat?

nice lol I liked the looks of the tracker style seat, but you can't see it when your riding, and style doesn't matter when your rear end hurts so bad that you dont want to ride anymore anyways.

Yep, and a tracker seat isnít the right look for a Desert Sled.  I built it for the sand and gravel roads and realized a Desert Sled is pretty much the same thing.

Haha.  I liked the tracker seat, but this really makes more sense for what it is.  If i change it again, it may end up more like the Bates seat...



But then Ducati is already copying the Bates seat on their new "desert sled"

Whatever floats your boat man.
The tracker seat is way better looking though  ;D

I made sleeves and shrunk them on to VM carbs for the 390 I had,  (70mm bore)  worked better than expected with zero air leaks. The variety of intake manifolds wasn't available in late 80's so I used stock ones
It was a 120mph 'ratbike'
 Surprising just how good it looks in the pics, deeper seat is probably way more practical for off roading and different enough to state bike is used rather than 'shown'

I have a bad habit of trying to make things from what I have laying around so I donít have to buy parts.

I got the pipes all welded up from stock headers and a CRF450 header plus one that came on my XL. I cut open the stock muffler to salvage the small perforated tubes, then machined end caps.
