W.I.P.

A couple of weeks ago I was digging through my basement in quest for some stuff to sell on Ebay, and came across my old solo seat. Should it stay or should it go?


I pondered awhile over the matter. My Sportster, although fully functioning is a project bike. So I decided to give the seat a second chance, have it reworked and use it just for different looks on my W.I.P. bike.

Here is, what my local car upholsterer did with it. I can't wait to install the refurbished seat. It should match perfectly to my recently procured frame bag.


And here it is installed:

Noch in Arbeit
Meine Sportster ist noch längst nicht fertig. Klar es funktioniert alles wunderbar, aber es ist eben doch noch ein Projekt. Vor ein paar Wochen hatte ich den Keller aufgeräumt und wollte ein paar Teile auf Ebay verschachern, als ich über meinen alten Solositz stolperte. Ich überlegte einen Moment und entschied dann, meinem freundlichen Autosattler um die Ecke den Auftrag zur Umarbeitung zu erteilen. Das Resultat kann sich sehen lassen. Der Sitz wird bestimmt super zu meiner im Juli gekauften Schwingentasche passen. Ich kann es kaum erwarten, den Sitz auszuprobieren.

  3. W.I.P. means "work in progress"?

    The solo seat looks pretty good!

    1. Thanks Richard. Your interpretation is correct, this is me using SCM (supply chain management) lingo.

  5. Pretty sweet looking. I am looking forward to seeing it on the bike. It is nice that you can have options. Now you can switch seats with your mood or what will function better for the ride.
