i hadnt been on the forum for the past 3 - 4 weeks i found the bike in the photo and just thought i'd share it - now after reading thru some the recent posts it does appear to solve 2 of the problems bigtrain was having - seat back and ability to haul 'stuff' including his golf clubs....

my view is to each his own (although for safety, i would hope this would not be allowed on public roads in the US or anywhere) - i'm looking forward to John G and Mildrew comments.

i wouldnt want to spend $700 for a new custom seat.....

Actually that car seat "mod" is a common start for the high mileage, feet forward guys. Quite a few of them started out using Honda Helixes (Helii?) and then modified the body tail for aerodynamics, etc

If I ever get another Silverwing, I will remember this picture. Probably wouldn't cost more than a grand to remove the bodywork from the back of the front seat forward and mold some fiberglass to create a finished look, then another grand to have custom seats made, like a king and queen setup.

I would lose half the underseat storage space, but with the addition of the top box I'm fine for daily stuff and I can always add saddlebags for long trips.

Could probably lower the front seat height by 4-6 inches this way.
Saves the cost of needing a taller windscreen too, at least for the driver.

I'm sure it's ultra comfortable, being a Honda Civic seat, but it just looks........ ridiculous.
The joker riding it doesn't even have his helmet strap secured. Might as well not even be wearing a helmet.

2002 with 47,000 miles on it for $3700, I can't see it selling to fast.  Question
bigbird know someone who had a low speed wreck wearing his helmet
like that and he broke his collarbone. Rolling Eyes
He found out he would have been safer with no helmet at all.

Not all back yard mechanics / fabricators can produce / modify something that Honda engineers spend quite a bit of time making it "pretty darn good."   This reminds me of all the folks who cut the top off their car to make a convertible, or take a Volkswagen bug and make a trike out of it.  These are the same folks who will weld another seat on a bicycle or make a baby buggie into a bicycle trailer.  

This guy ruined a perfectly good Silverwing and now he wants to get his original investment back out of it.
