    knew someone who cut up another wassell mudguard & used it as the base, about the only way to get a good fit unless ya a good fabriator & can make one yaself,...
    only other way would be to use tall spacers each side, you can make these with hard rubber tap washers with penny washers each side but the seat won't sit flat,
    personally I'd just fit a flat mudguard ,.

    Make Your Own Seat Pan

    "So you want to make a seat pan for your new chop, but don’t have the equipment to make one out of steel… then FIBERGLASS is for you.
    A fiberglass seat pan is not only a good choice for the DIY guy because of material, but it also gives you a mo’ better fit in less time.
    We decided to change the seat setup on “Dixie Wrecked” and went with a fiberglass pan.
    You can pick up all the materials you need at your local auto parts’ store. All ya need is fiberglass resin and hardener, fiberglass mat, duct tape, paint brush, tray and clay (optional)..."

    you could also mark where the seat pan hits the fender and mark it, slot the rib pound it flat an weld it. seems Tattoo did something like that so his taillight sat flat. Come on Tattoo throw up that pic for inspiration, LOL seriously I always liked it. PS anybody remember when they were free or about 5 bucks at the swap meet? And they ALWAYS had about 20 holes in them?

    A Brief Guide to Making a Custom Motorcycle Seat from Scratch

    "While not rocket science, there are a few things to bear in mind if you are making a motorbike seat from scratch. If you want to upholster and cover a custom seat, using some of these ideas will hopefully improve the finished seat and make it much easier and cheaper to trim and finish. ..

    A flat metal or fibreglass seat base suffers from the following six issues:

    -- There is no easy way to fix the seat cover to the base...
    -- The edge of the metal base will show by pushing through the seat cover...
    -- The normal way to fix the cover to a metal or fibreglass base is to use pop-rivets...
    -- If the base is flat, these rivets will be probably be visible from the side or back of the bike...
    -- Modern bike seats do not have flat seat bases...
    -- The base will probably be very flexible...
