Default Re: Bicycle Seat

Well, I have an old seat project
and I'm gonna give 'er another go.

The last time I did this it seemed
too far forward. This time I'm moving
it back past the seat post.

When I started this one, I ordered
a bracket from a harley parts and
some springs. It mounts on the
top tube and swivels up and down.
It will need a spacer, which I'll make
out of wood so that the bracket will
clear the seat tube.

The frame is made out of 1 1/4 c channel
with two uprights on either side.

The seat I made about five years ago,
I used a wood base with vinyl upholstery.
Three layers of cushion.

I'll try to get it finished this evening.
