Default Longer seat...

Hey guys,

I've been looking around lately for a way to get a longer seat with more padding on my 26" cruiser. I came across exactly what I want to do here:

I really love the way Alain has mounted the seat, and I was wondering if anyone has some tips on how to replicate this?

I'm 6'4" and 200lbs, so I'm also looking for something strong, lol.

That kinda looks like a seat off an old rupp mini-bike.......or a Taco or Bonanza.

How-a-bout the old stingray banana seat......with a little extra padding?

Here's a home made saddle that's really comfy. 4" high density foam on a plywood base mounted on a custom frame. It was easy to build and not too pricy. >

Check page 1 for the seat frame and page 5 of that thread for the finished bike photos.
