Springer solo seats
« on: November 05, 2021, 10:11:04 AM »
I think my Drifter would look really cool with a spring solo seat.  Anyone have one on theirs?  I'd love to see pics and hear where you bought it from.  I'm thinking of fabbing up one maybe from a universal kit that's found on Amazon.

I've done it to ma-deuce, and I'm really happy with it.
Here you can see the results:

I've been looking at this mod for my 99 1500. Can you please tell me where you got your seat? I see lots of them on Amazon, but I'm unsure which of them could be hacked to fit the Drifter. Most of them are listed to fit one Harley or another.

As far as I know, there are no springer seats made to fit our Drifters.
Even mine was listed to fit a HD or similar.
All you need is a flat piece of metal, a bit wider than the steel bridge that you can see standing over the frame, underneath the oem saddle.
That will be the base for the springer seat, to attach to said steel bridge.
If I'm not wrong, there should be a post about it on the Mods section of this Forum.

I have one that fits an 800 Drifter, only used it for about a month. From Bobbercycles.

I'd gladly ship it to you for $100. It's virtually brand new. I've got a bad back and I thought it would help. Ended up getting a Corbin solo seat.

I'd like to take you up on the offer.  Seems I can't get into your profile to send a PM.  How can we seal the deal?
