picked up this baby on ebay mostly because i havent seen anything like it on the road. i had planned just to throw it on my wall in my garage. its a gold metalflake seat cover on a stock honda seat. i heard from my boss that they used to sell these back in the 70's to match custom paint jobs.

personally i think the seat rocks. im workin on a 77 cb550 at the moment and i cant say that i was planning on keeping the bike stock...but the seat just screams 70's appeal to me.

what i picture is the gold seat and a black tank with matching gold 70's style metalflake flames...

what do you guys think?

I was wondering who was gonna buy that!

That is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. It will be perfect with the flame scheme on the tank. You should get a biltwell megaflake helmet to match!
