Default ugliest bike seat ever

Hi,this is my first thread. If didn't only pay $500 for my 85 vt1100c i would have ran like a scalded dog....p u ! i couldn't seem to get any information on compatible seats so I'm having a simi-custom riders seat and back seat made. I told him surprise me , i want something lower and more stream lined , hence the name boxybike ! They will me ready on Monday. at least now i can ride it to the shop. You can only go so far with an outdoor furniture cushion for a seat before some thing bad happens !

I second the outdoor cushion pic request. It would immediately be a hit.

i shouldn't say this but but I've been doing short test rides around the block like this for a while . no main tank or seats ! i don't need to do that any more, i don't have to drive it to know it runs like crap. All you have to do is wait till it warms up .....and it's toast ! I'm still waiting on my seats. I'll post some pics when i can !
