If you have some metal fabrication skills it's not hard. I made the frame then a 1/2" plywood foundation and added 6" of motorcycle foam (high density) and a half yard of vinyl. I'm not much of a seamstress and the wife's sewing machine wouldn't take the think material so I ended up hand stitching the cover. It's not too professional looking but it's one soft ride.
Thanks for all replies,
I like the 2door idea and will probably
use a similar system.

My original trial seemed as if it were forward
too much. The seat was right over the
post. It also needed to be longer.
