The fun part
Per future owner Emma’s request to have a bike that is low and easy to ride, plus look cool, we installed lower shocks. With that mod and the inclusion of a fender we had to get creative with the seat plan to ensure proper clearance. The trusty angle grinder got us the opening we needed.
A little bit of bending /welding and the holes is sealed off and looking custom!
Some more welding, sanding and painting got it looking good and ready for the fun part.
After working mostly with metal over the last few months shaping seat foam is pretty darn enjoyable. It is easy, quiet, calm and relaxing. No angle grinder threatening to make the rest of your life filled with high fours and no safety glasses required. Although clean up is a bit of a pain.
and the final shape on the bike. looking good!
We also got some serious moisture over the last week which made for some all time rad moto riding.
