Will have to post some pics later on.
Welcome to the best motorized bicycle forum available. You've come to the right place for help and advice.
To answer you question regarding my seat post; it is a home made item. I use 1" cold rolled steel cut down to 7/8" on a lathe and then bent using lots of heat from an oxy-act flame. I opted for a solid post as opposed to tubing because a friend of mine had a tubular one that collapsed on him. And he's no heavyweight. There are many sources for lay back, (bent) seat posts. Some might not be as heavy duty as mine but many of them are good for most average sized riders. Hope this helps.
