It's a 90s style fat tire bike you don't have any options that will look right on the bike...

If you're not happy with the seat currently,given that it's a pretty one off deal, I would just suggest having that pan reupholstered. Not sure what area you're in but if the resources aren't in you area (unlikely) you can send it to the Haifley Bros and they will do it. Super good guys to deal with.

Just didn't know if rigid guys are using these kinds of seats or what is most comfortable ! This is my first bike so kinda seeing what the options are

That's not really a rigid bike... Well it is but it's a fat tire bike that's out of style and when they were in style there wasn't many options for a seat... That bike will look goofy with a spring seat..... But it's your bike.... What's wrong with the seat that's on it now???

Haifley can make a seat for that ,a more traditional horizontal pleated seat that goes up onto the fender would look good. That bike could be brought into today's looks with little effort. You gotta have vision. Christ I'm trying to make a fxr look good. If that can be done.

Yes your bike looks good like it is but when you start putting things that's on today's rigid bikes it's hard to pull off...

Yes it is a rigid like I said above...

What I was trying to say that I think you missed is you can't put a spring seat on a frame like yours.. That won't look silly...


Again he ask?? What's wrong with the seat you have on there now???

Put whatever seat you want on it, who gives a fuck what it looks like. You can't see the seat when your ass is in it rolling down the road anyway, being comfortable and what you want is most important.
I think the spring mounted solo pans look gay and are for fags anyway...

Says the dude with a fat tire cookie cutter "chopper". Most of the bikes on here run the faggy sprung seats, not a good way to start your career on here.
