i removed the tall shock loaded seat post and replaced it with a standard seat post set as low as possible (required a bit of welding and grinding to make this thinner seat post about an 1/8"thicker like the spring loaded post) with a single spring columbia seat from my first build. Now it looks more streamlined, handles better, and is just as comfortable as the spring loaded seat post set up. I also cut a rear fender in half and mounted it to the rear. I am likely going to paint the rear fender silver or the entire bike flat black. last pic is with the tall seat post.
