I'm only posting this here because the seat is a little ratty. I replaced my springer crusier seat (which sat a litte too close to the bars for my size) and replaced it with a seat from schwinn huricane. I like that I am sitting back farther but dang, no springs mean I feel every bump right in my rump. I'm also a little concerned about the struts sitting on the axle. I'll give it a few weeks and see if I get used to it. In the mean time I'll keep an eye out for some compression struts, if they exist.
