Default banana seat fix

Hey guys ,

Here is my banana seat fix. I don't like the banana seat all that much, and I can't spend money for a while to get a cowl or do the two seat conversion. So here's my fix. My wife sewed a seam on some material with waistband elastic and I threw it on the bike. The material is some sort of spandex. I think it came out ok and tried to get the closest match to the blue of the bike.

hohg

Default Alternative Banana seat

In the UK the sub frame for a two seat conversion are difficult to find. I had my seat recovered with matching piping for 60.



I've now had the tail fairing painted to match the pearl flash yellow. Piccies to com.
