My build date is in october so I bought a second hand seat here to cover the time when my seat is being built.

Originally I asked for Black Grain Top and Black Carbon Fiber Sides, that was based on what I saw as a popular choice for all vinyl seats on their site. However I asked for a recomendation based on my riding profile and was recommended matte black top and pigskin vinyl sides, which I ended up going with.

Very cool. I have plenty of time to decide what options I want.

I'll give James/Sonia a call to go through the options.

I got a few up on this thread if you scan back. But they may not be close enough for what you want to look at.

Nothing like a buff and polish. Speaking of your forks, how long did traxxion say the turnaround would be?

So, have any of you had a chance to take a passenger on one of these seats? It looks like it gets pretty thin towards the back, not sure if it looks like the type of seat you could keep a passenger in for a 200 mi trip?

Nic,
You are correct it is thinner at the back end of it. I have not had a passenger onboard.
I think this is done to help flatten or level, then seat.
