    Well this is it for me with model airplane hobby. Why read the instructions when you can just look at the pics and just "Fire it Up". Pics speak for themselves. Now here`s the ironic part, I`m actually "signed off" to fly the Cessna 150 Aerobat. I can certainly fly the real thing better than I can this little piece of junk. My physical is on the 25th of this month so that will determine if I keep my ticket or not.

    That made me laugh Phil.... It's a well kept secret that "real" airplanes are much easier to fly than the models. Good luck on your 3rd class...:)

    Back to the XS650 scrambler project, today I got my new seat from Counter Balance Cycles. "Perfect". I couldn`t be more pleased. It`s hard to believe I finally got something that was right the first time and I didn`t have to redo it! This is "My Final Answer" for the seat-tank combo so now I can start changing my mind about other stuff like pipes, tires, fenders, bars etc.

    Damn, that is a nice seat!
    I bet it would look good behind that DT tank:rolleyes:

    Hell yes Phil!!!
    Bring the front up a tad so it's parallel with the seat (or down in the back), fair in the back a little.... I like it better than the white tank. That one's a little too boxy for my likin'.

    Great looking seat! I gotta say I like the DT tank also, but it's your bike. Follow your heart and you can't go wrong, you only have to make one person happy!
