New seat arrived, time to strip it down and see what I can make from it.

I was wondering why you wanted such a big seat for your bike. Now, I know!
To quote @MattiThundrrr , I'm letting the bike tell me what it wants.
I was planning to narrow the seat and keep the 'Cafe racer' rear fairing shape. But it looked hideous in reality lol.
So plan B. Chop it into a traditional Nana.

The friend I had purchased a donor bike from passed away mid week after a motor bike crash. He wash going to drop the bike off to me the following day. But.
As the bike was to donate its ape hangers, the handle bars are on hold for a while now.

I found a pic on ebay of the seat look I was aiming for. Not sure if I like it or hate it.

Nice detail on the red line! I'm coming in a little late, but def the silver / white raked fork was the way to go. Custom touches on the saddle are stellar! This has the makings of a cool GT Hotrod for sure!

Muscle Build oN~!
Thanks Oddjob, Appreciate the encouragement.
