Default Vintage King and Queen seat on a swing arm sportster?

Is this possible? Are They only for hardtails? Everytime I come across one I want they say "I no, you cant put that on a swing-arm suspension." I dont see why not.....

You can buy a King/Queen seat made for swingarm bikes:

But you have few choices. The seat has to fit the frame, so no, you can't use a seat made for a rigid and have it fit right.

I bought one thinking it was for a rigid but its for a swingarm. It is with a large pile of parts that I've been collecting (that will not work or just didn't look the way I wanted it to be) putting together my latest build. It is a vintage narrow seat that is in the for sale pile.

Everything old is new again. I'm waiting for long forks on unraked frames to come back.

ooh oooh, and crushed velvet.
