How to rig a stock seat for a bobber?
I'm doing a bobber conversion in several stages for financial reasons. Eventually, I am going to end up with the BCB bobber seat kit. I need to replace dry rotted tires...not normally an issue, but I am fitting tires that won't work with the stock fenders, so for a short while I need to run the stock seat until I have $$ for the BCB kit.
I've seen pics of stock seats mounted to bobbers, just wanted to get a better idea of how to fab up a basic bracket to mount it to the bike without the stock rear fender as support.
I haven't taken the rear fender off yet, but it looks like it would be possible to remove the bracket from the seat, flip it the opposite direction then mount it to a bar/angle iron of some kind bridging the gap in the frame.
Any pics of homemade brackets would be awesome.
