Well so far I'm loving this bike I ride it almost every day.
What's been done:
Exaust like emgo
Added harley bags
Upholstered seats both rider and pillion

To come:
Britwell keystone bar
A bit wider pegs for traveling
Belly pan
Gear indicator
Passenger bar(I have a black mate one but I gotta adjust it by welding the holes a bit further apart)

So far that's what I wanna do and have done.

Give me ur opinions on it :)

Like the bike!! I didn't see a listing for the flipped mirrors, which happen to be on the wishlist for my Rebel 500 ABS. I am the second owner of my bike, so I inherited all the creature comforts that were added to mine, including the gear indicator.

I like the seat. It looks just right.
Yeah I had it upholstered and costumized, didn't want to waste 200 on some seat on the Internet especially knowing that they weren't all that confortable

I customised mine but never took it for professional covering. Yours makes me think I should have done.

This is mine, Bruno. Extra foam (neoprene) made the seat flat. Then I covered it with neoprene sheet. That was slippery so I added a thin layer of neoprene foam. Firm but very comfortable now, and grippy (not pretty though!).

It's confortable is what matters most over looks anyways, you made it wider or is it my Impression?

It is the same overall dimensions (width and length) as the original. Some of the original seat remains in front and behind my modification parts. Being flatter may make it look wider.

Did you also work the pillion seat?

My pillion seat is never used so I have left it as it is. It looks good and is flat, but it would need extra width to properly support the 'sit bones', as well as probably depth. Those bones are key to seat design for me, hence my wish for a flat surface.

I changed mine to fit the look, even thou I don't ride with no one, sometimes my sister comes along but my fiance is not very fond of bike, so pillion sit is rarely used, but sinse I got the bags I use the pillion to strap them in place, also looks great with the sissy bar
