I like the lines but I don't like seeing the backbone on the bottom andI think the top could be taller

Here's a true cut and paste. Cut a piece of paper and put it over the screen and took a screen shot

Here's what I'm thinking

ya but what if you stretched the back to cover the backbone when you dish the sides? Its close but early in the build id let the bike progress them decide otherwise you might end up changing 2 or 3 more times along the way

Here's a pic of the seat I'm going to use. I'm going to use two and put one behind the other. They're off of harley police bikes.

What do you think?

A few different things

I can't find two of the same that are in good shape

After my idea I saw OCC do it on a trike they built

And most of all. The wife's requesting something a little more comfortable

then she's probably gonna want a sissy bar... At the very least, a short backrest.

besides... With the apes in that position, you aren't going to be leaning forward at all yourself ... So give her a sissy bar & you get to kick back against her on trips. Win-win...

here's a few more pics. These fenders are too wide. I have 10 inch wide fenders on order ( same style ) If they're not wide enough I'll split these.
