Great fab skills but that is possibly the weirdest and most out of place looking seat I have ever seen.

 Well, not sure about the "weird" part...seems like a kind basic, square section type of Cafe style, but yes, it does seem to sit awfully high relative to the tank position, that's what I find kind of out of place.

I'm more surprised though, by the choice of using such a nice, clean looking bike......If it were me I'd be more inclined to have gone that route if it started out being a beat-up, scruffy looking unit, but this one looked really nice from the get-go.

 And yeah, the fabrication skills are there......I can only hope when the time comes that I can pull off stuff like this.  Hell, I'm still working on getting my back yard shop finished, let alone starting on or finishing current projects!

Seat height is where it is cause I'm 6 foot tall and want to be comfortable. Bike is not rare and not really worth that much so I might as well make it how I want. Was nice yesterday so pushed it outside to get a look.
