Default Re: Tinsmith's saddle how to...

Putting extra brackets to adapt to the kinda bars (sissy bars) used on banana seats for bikes. I made my banana seat have a top cover with more foam, but it is not as wide as that mini bike seat. I am going to see about creating extra metal further back on the banana seat to get the extra padding there adjacent on each side, but leaving the forward section as narrow. That is so I can stand up on foot pegs while trail riding. Note I ridded of pedals from the get go on my bike as it is registered for off road only legal. Unless I get a lot of private land for paved, I have an issue with needing a good seat well padded.

The picture in this post a temp with tape holding it on, it uses two types of foam to get desired cushion.
