Good score for $200. Seen some pretty slick setups on XS's.

i like the way the biltwell seat looks on that frame. I've been trying to figure out a seat for mine that dosent leave my legs resting on the frame rails, and everything ive come up with has been ugly

How do you plan on staying on that seat when you hammer the throttle?

Yeah no joke haha. I have a tcbros hardtail, and I use 4" springs. works pretty good for me. With my biltwell seat, I would almost say a 5" if you want the seat to tilt up a bit.

yeah i def bought the wrong hight springs but i am gonna wait till i put the fender on to decide what to do maybe a p pad i kind of like to stretch when i ride

I'm running 4 inchers on mine with a west eagle seat and a biltwell cast bracket. I tacked my mount too far forward, so I'll bring it back down and it should be nice and flat then.
