Am not at all happy with the seats on the 750. All of the 3 seat options are for the rider - only. I know Street designed as a Cafe Racer (which is designed around a single rider) but I would like to have it be comfy for 2.

Anyone know any seat customizers in Bangalore who can make a split seat like - the one in the picture? These ones look real comfy.

Backrest too is important, so look at the 3rd picture for an idea.

Yeah, that's my favourite too. Gotta find a way to use those accessories on the street.

Wonder why street was designed in a way NOT to support accessories from other bikes. Sad.


Cheers,

KK

Get hold of the best automobile seat maker in your city preferably the one who makes them for bikes. should not be a problem to customise one

THe Street is a pretty different bike from most of what Harley has been making in the past. It might have been too hard to create the bike in a way that would support old accessories. Plus they probably make more money this way.

Exactly! I dont see anything interchangable without extensive modification to make it fit.

I find the least costly way to get a really comfortable seat is to take the stock seat to a good upholstery shop and let them repad and recover it to fit your tender bits. A good shop will have you sit on the new padding several times, making adjustments until it fits you just the way you want it to, and you won't pay anything close to the exhorbitant prices Saddleman, Corbin or similar big names charge for their production line seats.

After hearing you mention this option several times DT I've gone and brought my CB400 in for exactly that ;) Will be looking into this as well when the Street comes around. Want to raise seat height so I can install clubmans/clipons and then my legs wont be SO folded as the pegs get moved rearwards. So Cheers ;)

I think you already have a very fine bike CB400. How that compares with Street 500 or 750?
Not sure, haven't ridden either the 500 or 750 as of yet :D;) the 400 is bundles of fun though I can tell you that much. I'm not the biggest guy so its plenty nimble and quite fast. I'm 5'8" maybe 140-145 :D...

in that case i can't wait to hear what you have to say about how your 400 fells when compared to the street

Be on your CB400 when you go. Take a good ride of both Cruisers and compare with your Honda and write a Review. Would be Interesting!
