Complete Genius! I could just weld a backrest to a new grab handle. Thanks for your ideas.

you could even find a used handle from someone who's done the split seat conversion and mount the backrest directly off of that...
huh? what? you can do that? I searched for a better explaination but I couldn't find one. could you point me in the right direction?

You're welcome for the ideas. Here's a couple of leads on tail conversions. I have an '01, so I don't think about them. I just know it's been done and someone who's done it might have a cheap grab handle for you to buy.

I have a '02 f4i. How much would you charge total for making me one of these?

I haven't been active on the site in quite some time--I updated my server a while back and the images seem to have disappeared. It's updated now, so they're back in all their glory. To update, I still have the seat and it is still holding up nicely!

I wish I could find the UHMD plastic. This is a great idea compared to the bulky, heavy one I made for my daughter out of metal.
