I wouldn't change a thing except loose the bitch pad and go! I think the stock seat is fine the extra pad is the heavy one. I remember this project when it was a set of grenaded cases. You are to be commended and worshiped! I am not worthy! http://img246.echo.cx/my.php?image=flatboy7wj.png

JIm,
Like Fat Dog, I've been following your odessey since you first linked images to this site. We share the combination of new & old. I desired an electric leg for my chosen motor ( Knucklehaed ) over ten years ago. The build was a long drawn out affair. It is very difficult to tastefully blend the new with the old and still have a practical and aesthetically pleasing combination. Mention was made of combining a 16 inch wheel with the softail springer. You said that you thought that you might combine the two along with a Fatboy fender. I did so with Terrapin. Image In retrospect I would admit that It "aint right ". Had I been a little more critical, the angle of the mount would have been more complimentary to the lines of the springer and the frame. Enough about me ! Great effort JIm. JKE

Well thats the wrong login. It must be mental pause. This isn't the music site. I guess I'll have to post pictures of the guitars I make next.
