Default Re: Seat shock from pocket rocket

Exactly 2Door. The seat clamp was wearing out, and would not maintain the seat position no matter how hard I tightened it. Instead of getting a new seat clamp, I decided try a springer seat arrangement.
The top of the shock attaches to the seat with a normal seat clamp. For the bottom I slid a piece of aluminum tubing over the shock (from a non working mini tire pump). The bottom of the alum tube is notched to hold position on the frame. I need to secure the tube to the frame a little better.
