Yes I figured it out with no hang ups. The seat mocked up fit perfect. Not exposing to much and no hanging over. nice and stream line.
I used a universal chrome mounting bracket $12.95 and a hollow steel rod cut down and welded to the frame.
check her out now
thanks Sean aka Fatlucky for such a great high quality seat.

Looks goooooood! I knew you could do it.What style tag and light bracket you gettin one that mounts on the fender or side mount.I believe if you take that fact taillamp off your gonna find some holes and stamped in raised up bracketry underneath it.If this is the case you know what this means is your about to go all the way and have to pull the tins off and weld up the fender and giver your own new custom paint look.:)

I always liked the chrome layback lisc plate holder that custom chrome use to sell it lays the plate back so it aint stickin straight up.Well keep us posted and let us know what colors are comin next.LoL

Nothing beats the old classic"limp Dick Lamp".
Is that suppose to be a direct replacement for the stock tailamp where it just bolts on? I know a few years back when I got my last new harley I had it stripped down and painted in 2 weeks after gettin cause I saw one just like it in town and I cant stand to have one that looked the same.

Nope, not a direct replacement.
Mounts to a radiused fender (yer basic flat fender works nice) - the sporty fender has that bulge where the taillight goes.
Whack the fender off and drill new holes, voila!

No offense, but late-model Sporty and bobber go together like peanut butter and mayo...you can try it, but it'll never be right.

I think your going to find its starting to look more like a Ralpher or a Fredder,Maybe check with Caffine as he is the upmost expert on them.The ralpher look takes me back a few years really cool but obscure,which means it aint been played out yet.
:) :D :) :D

None taken but can you explain why it wont work
It's out of context. Like putting wide whites and steelies on a new car/truck/PT Looser...you can do it, and lots of people do, but that doesn't make it right.
