Default Fightered Yamaha R6

I bought a rocket after having a Harley Davidson Sportster Roadster and all the plastic wasn't for me. So I'm making it mine. I have always love cafe racers so I looked into that option and decided to start. I take a ton of pictures so that if anyone wants to follow in my footsteps they are welcome to do so.
So I like the cafe style but know women like to ride on the back so I'm putting the whole seat unit on industrial strength drawer sliders with locks on both ends to secure it with a second seat where the first would slide away from. To my knowledge this is the first of it's kind.
Let me know if you have some points as I am all ears!

Here is the journey from this:

attempted to make a fiberglass seat, too many air bubbles and a poor mold (my own fault) has made me switch to bondo as my second attempt I'm going to do either tomorrow or Monday

So far, let me know what your thoughts are.
Also, I'm leaving the frame brushed like it is, paint the rest white, with brown leather, looking to get some vinyl "1856" for the year of my fraternity's founding to put on the flap that hangs down. most likely a rustic red color
