Hey Guys and Gals,

I'm teaching a friend about bikes. He has never had a street bike before and is trying to build a cafe racer out of a pile of a bike. He is pretty broke and is going to rely on the bike as daily transportation.

So far it has been going good (considering I think he got taken on the bike and he got it for nearly free) and are close to being roadworthy, but we hit a snag. His stock seat pan is rusted off at the hinges an he hasn't been able to find a replacement stocker. He is short so the stock seat was a litte too tall for him anyway.

Does anybody have a fibreglass racing seat that they are not using and would be willing to part with cheap? It doesn't have to be pretty, but it needs to be wide enough to fit a UJM across the frame 4 cyl (suzuki GS). Don't worry about mounts, we can rig something.

I can take a measurement if you need. The GS seems a little narrower than my cb750s but it is definatly wider than a cb350 twin. Let me measure the bike tomorrow.

I just bought this, I don't need it. Nice thick fiberglass, nice gloss paint, nice upholstered seat. Let me know if you want it before I EBay it. Pay what I paid, $45 plus shipping. Or if you're going to be in NH anytime soon, you can pick it up.

Let me know if the next few days.
That looks perfect. How wide is it? I noticed you had it pictured on a cb750, is it wide enough to fit that bike? if it is then it will definatly fit the GS. $45 is a good price, done. I'll e-mail you to sort out the rest of the details.
