Yachtie- if you like that look, search fleabay for VonZeti. Seats, subframes, and other parts used on the KSS bikes.

Done. The subframe and seat ship on Friday. Ordering some tommaselli condor plus bars and calling it a day. Then going to ride the hell out of her for awhile before I tackle anything else. Need to find some really cool lo profile turn signal LEdS if anyone has suggestions.

I was thinking about getting that rear subfame but it makes it hard to put a shelf under the seat hump for a battery or tools or whatever.

I found some very nice low profile LED signal lights at Dime City Cycles.

Very clean GeeWiz. Seeing your seat reminds me of a problem that hopefully you can help me with or maybe others can. See how your seat frame touches your seat all the way around flush at the perimeter of your seat? Why does my seat frame bend down right before the shock mounts so that s straight seat will never lie flat like yours? I thought mine was bent by a heavy rider but this is a design characteristic as you can see this bend in the microfiche drawings of my R100. Also I have checked a few others and they all bend right before the shock mounts where there is a lot of reinforced metal which makes it look very hard to straighten out. Maybe it is the newer subframes that are not straight like yours?

My subframe bends down like all the others. I solved the problem by building my own seat. I just didn't care for any of the available ones and I wanted mine to flip up like the stock seat so that I could keep a tool tray underneath and get to the battery. Here's what I did:

First get some foam blocks and cut away anything that doesn't look like a seat.



Then sand it to shape.



Cover it with Bondo (fiberglass will melt the styrofoam) and sand it, fill it and then cover it with a couple of layers of fiberglass cloth and resin. Fill it and sand it some more.



Make sure it fits.



Finally, paint it and most importantly, find a good upholsterer to make you look good.

The similarities are striking. Is yours home built as well?
