How to make this seat look better?

I've made my own seat pan for my CL350 and I got some 2" foam for it. I liked how the seat pan came out, but not so much with the foam on it now. The shape seems a little odd. Anybody have any tips for making this look a little better? The CL tank mount seems to make it difficult.

Keep it simple- engine, wheels, bars
Lose the rear fender and don't have the metal tongue come up onto the rear of the tank.

The seat should be flat like a skateboard. The Upholsterer can blend the front into the tank by making a "football".

Seach for "wrenchmonkee seat" in google.

the seat pan definitely needs to be flush on the frame. also, consider chopping the rear end behind the shocks and adding a rear hoop like a cafe. it would definitely clean the bike up from the rear.

What is this 'football' you speak of? I'd like to do as much of this by myself as I can.

Football, wedge, ball breaker...

I actually don't have a good picture on my laptop but it looks like a quarter of a football and transitions from the seat "flat" to the tank. They were big on 70's Honda Choppers, usually diamond quilted....

Nevermind, I think I'm the only one that remembers. I'm gettin' too old for this shIt... :-[
