    Default Dropped seat on a swingarm sporty?

    Looks like a guy can add a smaller shaped oil bag and move the battery to the swingarm getting rid of that flat back sporty seat look. Anyone doingredients this?

    Are we talking ironhead, Evo or rubbermount sportsters here?
    In any case, if you can fabricate, sure.
    Sounds like you want to "Kong" your frame.
    As seen the UJM swingarm crowd.

    Solid mounting a battery to a swingarm will drastically shorten its useful lifespan.
    Vibration.
    Lithium batteries pack CCA into a small package.
    Some brands are better than others...

    Yeah. I hear dropseat sporty and get real worried. Look at this fucking thing.




    The riding position must be retarded. It's like when that kid gets sucked into the pipe in the IT movie with Tim Curry as pennywise.

    That's awesome (the one by MM and SF). This type of frame mod would be a perfect candidate for a crazy frank rear fender/strut section that would actually look good on a newer sporty. They stock flat portion of the frame under the seat really kills the look for me.

    Check out crib motorcycles. They do a lot of sporties this way. Looks good. And I agree. Crazy frank would look killer on that style.
