So, I put the seat on and then discovered it was too high for me. My tootsies were barely hitting the ground.
Original stock seat went back on. Then I went into the kitchen to do some cutlery work. Wrong place... I found that out after I had to clean the mess up. Foam everywhere.
Beginners Tip: Don't wear a fleece vest while cutting foam.
The sander being square and not round was a bit awkward to say the least, but it worked when I moved slower. At the end of the day I ended up being happy with it and what I have accomplished so far. I know this isn't such a big deal to most of you wrenchers out there... but a biggy for me. I just imposed my craft room project head into it. Surprisingly, I really like working on the bike...even if it is a bolt here and there.
So, now what? I wait. Wait until I figure out what I want for a covering. I have an idea, and I think that is where the $$ will go. So just getting it all down on paper and starting it is all that is needed. Hunting for inspirations...
This Nightster Project 11 may go on for awhile.
In the meantime, I do have a super low reach seat on its way from E-bay. Got a good deal on it that included free shipping. I like wheeling and dealing on those "submit offer" buttons ~ so much fun! Still all in all, everything I have done has been a lot less expensive than if I had a custom seat made, and now I have a small touring seat to boot. Change is good *smiles*.
Happy Never Ending Project Trailzzz,
