Welcome to the Forum. I like the cushion seat myself. Looks comfy.

I finally got it running good enough to do something about the ugly seat. I had the seats redone for a more streamlined look. The sissy bar was removed, but I cut the brackets so I could still mount the back seat. Stock rear turn signals were moved to the seat/back rest bracket (a bit higher than stock.) New paint for the tank and some new shadow badges. All these mods were fairly cheap, but I think you'll agree it's an improvement

The new seat is okay......but once you've had a cushion......I don't think anything else can compare.
