Does any one know a website that is selling a replace seat that is actually comfortable?

Dex, I have attached is a photo of what I ordered.

Twizzian, Yes I ordered the seat from HRP.

Can't say about the seat body as I've not seen one without the covering yet, but the seat is done at Noi Watdan, same shop I had mine re-upholstered, marvellous job.

I gotta say, I'm digging that so far. Would LOVE to see it in a brown. Looking forward to the comfort report, Kenny G.

Ques: you can still do saddles bags etc with that type of seat?

Thrilla,

The seat I have ordered is brown.

Throw over saddle bags usually work fine with the banana type double seats. Some guys put the bags on and then the seat over top of the throw ons. If you get a more permanent kind of bag they work with any seat but are usually not very passenger friendly.

So after 3 weeks riding on that seat, I had finally had enough of sores butts and bought a seat for my ride.
Bought some aftermarket universal chopper seat on ebay.
Pain in the ass to mount especially the springs. But I have to say right away, way more comfortable :D
That will do until some nicer seats are aviable, cost 85?, somehow couldn't find a seat with support plate from any reliable seller.

Jinger,

That seat wouldn't do me any good unless it could be mounted about 6" further back than the way that you have mounted the seat on your bike. It is a nice looking seat. How tall are you?

I'm 1.75 m or 5.9 in freedom units, yeah I can't even move it back further, it maxed on the rail mount.
But it's ok for me.

I don't know why but I couldn't find that kind of seat with a support plate, that at least covers the cablea underneath the seat, outside of the US.
The seller I found was one of the only selling that saying it would fit on the rebel.

My 1st ride and I didn't want to start drilling holes and such.
But i got a 3d printer so might try and make a cover for under seat.
