Looks like standard HD to me... it doesn't have the Pan-era reinforcement plate at the back, so either repop or Knuck.

What isn't lining up?

This is a regular solo seat that fits my Tbar. The front has one bolt in the middle, this buddy seat has two bolts on either side at the front, and the back mount is very far back. Do buddy seats have a different Tbar?

You're missing the adapter bracket, from seat to t bar. HD p/n 52551-36

...and there is a bunch of other bits and pieces you need for the helper spring assembly.

I just got finished doing this conversion on a bike, what a pain.

Thanks for the part number Joe, that's awesome. I got this buddy helper setup, but I think I'm missing a part that connects it to my fender or frame?

That's most of the shit you'll need; good to have.

You'll need buddy pegs and peg brackets, of course.

As far as missing things for the seat, it depends what you are putting it on. That looks like a setup for a sprung-rear-end-bike, and I think you'd have everything but the yoke bracket. (52586-36) If you're putting that on a sprung bike, it's a lot easier, as I think later fenders have nuts spot welded to the inside of the fender to accept that yoke bracket; it saves pulling the rear wheel.

If you are putting that setup on a rigid, you'll need a different mount bracket. (52581-36). I think your spring assembly won't work either, for that you'll need a different spring mount jibbler... 13327-36.

52586‑36 missing is this fender hook clip for the spring yoke.

Not to step on you govmule84, but that is a ridged set up. Springs and yoke pivot at the frame mount on ridge and on the seat for swingarm.
Seat mount set up for swing arm.

So I think I got it now, the long bolt goes through the frame tube (I have a chrome plug on each end of the frame currently) and the square pieces sit on top of the frame on each side, i still need a holder clampclip for when it's not in use. This is on a swing arm panhead BTW

This is the hook bracket I need for the fender, my fender has two holes on either side though, not two in a row like this example

My bad the one he showed is a step frame style 58-64. The one I picture is the 65-up. I didn't pay attention to the lack of a curve in the yoke that the ridged has and the Duo glide doesn't. Sorry for any ruffled feathers. I will have to do a little more thinking before posting.
