    I live the look if this seat. Does anybody know where I could find something like this that follows the curve of the frame? Or, would I be better off just trying to fabricate my own? I have zero experience in this subject, so all help is more than welcome. :thumbsup:

    It looks like they could make that seat though.:D

    You could try a airtech fiberglass seat and trim it down to follow the contour of the seat rail. $131.

    That's a very good idea. Is there anybody that has actually fabricated a seat to follow the frame?

    They show up on ebay now and again. XS850's used the same tank too. They used the teardrop too.
