This mornings coffee cup got me remembering a great ride and a great time. My thermometers current reading also puts the temperature differential at 109 degrees between then and now.

I really like this bike though!

Can you chop/shorten the rear section, lose the 'pillion' section of the seat kind of 'ala street tracker' - and have it still look right?

Not a lot I can do with the original seat pan since it's metal. I'd have to narrow it and cut some off the back. Would be difficult to attach a custom seat cover to it once I did that.

I've made a seat pan for this bike in the past. Wasn't that big a deal. Pretty sure I can do a better job now.

I do want to keep the stock rear plastic with some minor modifications to the tail light.
