Hey just found this site. I just purchased a 2001 Honda Spirit in the fall and decided to fix it up. I'm almost done just need a single seat. I'm from Canada by the way! Thanks

Here is my ride. I painted the gas tank and fenders. Replaced many parts, but as you can tell the big bulky seat is annoying!

Welcome to the forum.

What big bulky seat? Doesn't look very comfortable.

Thanks for the welcome.


Have you got 2 user profiles?

Mustang seats are the way to go. I picked one up used last season for a good price, far more comfortable than stock. I can ride for hours.
