The more I look at the bike with that tank, the more convinced I am that the seat pan needs to be upolstered with a 1980s superbike bustleback to it. I really want that period vibe.
Anyone looking for a pair of the Bultaco's one that needs to be cleaned up the other needs to be just rode. There's a nice lady French teacher who lives in northern California with a pair left in a garage by her late husband, See bikes for sale.The more I look at the bike with that tank, the more convinced I am that the seat pan needs to be upolstered with a 1980s superbike bustleback to it.

Tanshonomi, Like the brackets nice work and I especially like the use of flat head allen screws to mount the things to the chassis. Nice touch and starting to look "FACTORY" very cool.Well, I've made some good progress lately, but there is still a monumental amount of work ahead of me!
I too see where he's going. For me the balance with things such as that is to make certain that the fender arch and the wheel/tire arches line up. There in is the balance. I also will admit that I have a hard time on my own projects when the colors are not the same really getting the feel for how it all comes together. As far as getting things to look like they came from the factory that way the real trick is in the last 15% of the work. That is the hard part because it's all about the fine file and sandpaper part of the job. When the edges of the brackets are filed and polished it will all look perf.Nevermind, I see what you are going for in the ZRX picture
Yes in deed ! That gives it a far better perspective. I would bob the rear cowl of the seat at an angle to match either the front or rear of the seat or fuel tank. That wee bit of tail that hangs below everything else looks....................well like it hangs below everything else................Why ? One other purely aesthetic observation the giant black seat is a mite overwhelming on a motorbike of that size that will never accommodate a passenger weighing over 5 kilos.....LOL.......just saying.I was thinking the same
Go for it
Do like the more abbreviated look of the seat on the twin and really think that, that 1/4 fairing will be the biz. I would fine some little signals so they'll go with the little motorbike but that fairing should look great.
