That's kinda iffy. I don't think I ever seen a sport bike with that type of seat for actual function. What kind of bike are you putting it on? Can you photoshop it in?

If it's on a cruiser, I've seen cruisers on twisties that blew my mind, thought those bikes weren't capable. But with the right rider, they are.

dude, if you build a bike that's ANYTHING like that confederate hellcat...... i'll come steal it in the night :D

as for the seat... for anything other that cruising down the interstate, or riding around town, they suck. had something similar on one of my old bikes. the main problem is that you can't move around on them. especially at any kind of fast pace, it's be scared my butt would end up on the back tire.

just my opinion though.

i would opt for a corbin seat opposed to the mountain bike seat...would gup a little less up your ass, and fit better against the tank.

i got my corbin saddle (a 300 dollar seat) for $100 from droptop off stuntusa.com

I like seats that rise up a little in the front and back to keep me from sliding around when riding fast. As long as it's not too drastic I can still get a knee down.

Yeah, I don't think that would work well for twisties. Your inner thighs will have nothing to be against if you move up toway the tank. You bike looks good with the seat you have on there. If anything, just trim the padding on the existing seat.

$300? there's freagin livingroom furniture that go for $300
