In the final stages of building. First pic is how it started. It's been on the road for some test miles and now stripped down again for paint and powder coating. Fenders and tank will be flat black.

Solid seat rides a little rougher than the one with springs. Still tweaking the one with springs, plan to move it back about 1.5 inches or as much a possible without crashing into fender. It will also get covered with black leather or vinyl once it's done. Even after the one with springs is all done it will sit me up about an inch higher than the solid one. Which seat looks best?

The solid seat does flow with the tabk very well. If keep it. Get its meant for good looks not comfort. Lol

First bike i ever had was a red nighthawk like this. We abused the poor thing, one buddy got arrested on it. Hideous looking thing with that plastic. Glad to see you doing this!

I like the looks of the solid seat but it's too rough for my old back:mad: This is rev 2 of one with springs. Covered with vinyl now but thinking of leather?
