Hi,

I am wanting to customize my 2003 T100 by fitting a slimmer and shorter brat style seat as shown in the below image.



I understand that I will need to cut the rear frame and weld a curved end piece to it, however, do the aftermarket custom seat usually bolt on to the existing mounts?

Can anyone recommend where to buy brat styled seats from?

Cheers

If you want to cut the frame and go with a shorter seat my guess is that it will all have to be a complete custom job.I have not seen a bolt on solution.For a slimmer seat I would recommend the british customs slammer seat or the Roland Sands two up seat,although they are not shorter they do look great and will bolt right up.

I was looking for the same thing . And i end up buying a jp vintage brat seat. It seems to be the shorter one available without having to cut or weld the frame

If you can Weld, you can buy the hoop on eBay for 30 bucks. Then buy the seat you like.
If you want a complete kit, seat, brackets, hoop you can from maccomotors, best seat imo but $$$
Simplest route, get one from British customs or a company like that and it will bolt on to your stock mounts.

Keep in mind where you want to mount a tail light,british customs offers the slammer seat with a lucas style light built right into the back of the seat.

There are some nice looking brat style seats here, http://www.texavina.com

I remember reading a good review on these seats on this forum.
I believe the guy who wrote it only had to make a very minor modification to make it fit perfect.
