I know it doesn't look like much but there is lots of thought and work involved to get her to this point.

Frame shortened 2.5"
swing arm lengthened 3"

Special #6.2

I have been working on so revisions to trusty old Special #6 the past couple of weeks. It all started with a new battery box and now I am building an entirely new seat. This seat is all aluminum as opposed to the original which is all stainless. I wanted a back to it as well as a bit of a cafe racer hump so here you can see me mocking up the panels with the seat travel fully compressed.

I have a few ideas on how I will do the upholstery but the trick will be designing something I can fabricate myself.

This project is a good warm up to all the sheet metal work I'll be doing on the Triton project soon!
