    Shorter seat?

    Does anyone have any ideas on a shorter seat for a 1977 R100RS? I currently have a Corbin two-person seat and it is a little tall for my short legs. If it wouldn't be soo uncomfortable I would just take it off and ride it like that. Any clues as to a stock seat or a custom maker that would work would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Matthew

    Check out convertable top shops...or...furniture rebuilders.
    You may find the stock seat only needs some of the foam cut off -- I'm told a reciprocating kitchen knife is the hot set-up...
    and the front portion of the seat narrowed.
    Narrowing it will make it easier to get feet on the ground, without sacrificing too much butt padding.\
