GRRRRRR... Does that bike make children cry when you ride by? Does it make nuns pull up their habits to give you a look at their boobs?
It's awesome man! Great work!

Just guessing obviously, but theres probobly a heavy gauge piece of steel under it holding his ass up. Maybe a cut down leafspring? Dont see it in the pics, but something has to be there.

Putting boot to ass since 1967!
That's a cool looking bike, kinda reminds me of some of the Detroit Bros stuff.

The seat pan is being held up by a leaf spring. I used to U clamps to hold the leaf on the neck of the frame underneath the gas tank. And the seat pan is bolted down by flat head allen screws. Seat looks cool, cause it looks like its just hovering and very comfortable too.
Bike fits me like a glove. and the posture is perfect. Long trips rest your chest against the tank.

Awesome job man. I agree with the others on the "no" for color. Might take away from its bad ass look. Nice job on the leafer seat too. Any clearance issues between the seat and fender when you bounce up and down on it?
How far along are you with it and I too would love to see a pic with you on it.
