I've finally taken some photos of my '03 T100 with a Triumph "68" Solo Seat installed. Its a great fit and much more comfortable than the stocker. It seems to be wider, flatter, and more supportive. I painted the embossed "Triumph" with gold enamel. I'm thinking of having the dual seat re-done, either with white piping or in a "small squares" touring seat format. Time (and my bank account...) will determine which I go with. Anyhow...a couple of angles with the new seat are below:

They're pretty nice. I like to be in a more athletic position when I ride and the N-H items answer the mail quite well on that count. They look pretty stock with the rubber rests and they're comfortable to boot. I have a review posted entitled "Norman Hyde Rearsets over there on the left if you're interested in an in-depth critique. Thanks for your comments...

Hey Sheepdog,

What kind of enamel did you use to paint the seat logo? Any special tips for doing this?
I love the look of it-very vintagey.

Sweat did a great job on his seat painting. I'm afraid that mine is more pedestrian...I just painted it with Testor's gold enamel (model paint) and a fine paint brush. If you do it my way, be sure to shake up the paint every so often or it settles...

I recently outlined mine with a gold paintpen and after 2 weeks it still wasn't dry! So I removed it with WD40. The directions said it would work on this type material. So now to decide if I want to do it again and find another brand pen.
