Is that a repro? Does someone make a 3/4 repro seat?

I talked to the painter this arvo. Looks like it will be painted and pinstriped next week. I tried taking a few photos today of the seat. Very hard with this very low winter sun.

Edgar at Flatracer.com has a business in making high quality replica parts for airheads. Edgar has just finished a small run of 3/4 seats and cowls. I have had a look at Andy Gadgets worn out original and the replica is very hard to tell apart from the seat base being fibreglass instead of steel.

Flatracer seats and 3/4 cowls are interchangeable with the originals. Flatracer also sourced a new rear tool tray for the 3/4 seat from BMW. Without the tool tray, there is a big hole under the rear of the seat.

Fuel injection and a turbo charger? He could have at least picked better panniers. It's an oxy moron bike.
