The seat came with as two whole truck loads of old bike parts for $30, And the day I brought it all home I tried giving it away but then after seeing the one on the original simplex I new that it was destined to go on this bike, The Sidecar will be detachable for ease of loading and for those times I just want to ride without itChainsaw said:Hey! I recoginze that seat! :shock: Did you get it off of an old Schwinn exerciser or Exercycle? I've had ones from both. Very Comfortable! Many people don't think so but once they ride my bike ... they believe.
I feel I should give you this caution though:
Any and all Rat Rod and RatBike guys will try to buy this seat from you! :lol: If you go to any car, motorcycle or bike shows/swapmeets be prepared for this! P.S. the Exercycle seats are the better of this style seat. sturdier built and better chrome.
Your bike is coming along great! You've really caught spirit of the old iron. Very nice job on the springer. Looking forward to seeing the completion of this old horse. The sidecar would be a great addition, but please do youself a favor and make it detachable.
