We got our first batch of these cast aluminum seat pans in, and of course I had to snag the first one for my race bike. Someone had to mount one for some good pictures right?! We will be adding these this week to our website, but act quick if you want one, these are made in low run batches of ten!
The bosses on the bottom of the pan come un-drilled so you can drill and tap them to whatever spacing you need for mounting.
I used a polished stainless steel Biltwell seat pivot
and a set of our 4" seat springs
, I would have liked to use some shorter springs but I needed to build to the tech requirements for Bonneville Speed Week. I spent a bit of time making some cool little aluminum spring retainers to mount them. I swiped the idea from Jay Roche over at Special 79
, hope you don't mind man, worked great!
I decided to take this little project a bit further since it's for my land speed bike and drill some lightening holes in it. Every ounce counts right? And it looks killer!
I think this is getting sanded down and sent off to the polisher! A good days work I'd say. Let me know what you think! Cheers, Kyle
