Hey fellas, I've been planning a basic cafe racer project for a long time. I'm looking at buying some basic dodge 250 (cheap rego) in the summer and doing it up. Fitting aftermarket bars etc... is no problem. However I'm having trouble trying to figure out how to mount some sort of solo seat, wherether I buy a fibreglass example, or make my own. I'm looking for advice from anyone who has mounted their own seat before, whether for a race bike, or any sort of project. My current theory is, if you can visualise this, remove original seat, remove all unnecessary bracket, trim and reinforce the subframe if necessary, and then weld in place on top of the subframe, a solid flat steel pan. Or just weld in place a few horizontal strips of steel across the subframe, so I still have access to the battery box underneath. IDK, depends on the bike. Mabye a hinged steel base would do the trick. The purpose of this welded steel base ofcourse is so I can then drill holes through it to secure the seat base. Drill a few holes through the fibreglass seat, paint and upholster it with the seat bolts through it, mount, enjoy. Am I approaching this the right way? I have no experience with welding, fibreglass, or anything like this. Any words of experience?
