    Solo Seat Question

    Gang,

    Got a really nice HD solo seat for my '50 today. Very cool since it was still in the box and dated coded the same year the original owner of my bike quit riding it. 1972! I don't think it's ever been sat on. I'm a happy camper.

    Anyway, my bike has the buddy seat overload springs/support which I am keeping on the bike. Question: has anyone utilized these springs with a solo seat? It looks like it would work, if I put the support capture brackets from the buddy seat on the solo?? May be a better ride for my 6'-1", 250lbs butt.

    Just wondered if it had ever been done.....

    Actually somewhat common. Since the brackets will bolt to the tee it is pretty simple.

    New spring sets are available. With the correct springs for your wieght range and a bit of adjustment, the seat post will give a nice ride for a solo seat over a wide range of "loads".

    After browsing several other posts on the subject, I came to the conclusion I am going to rebuild the pogo stick springs. Several others have used David Croft springs with great results, so I gave him a call. Good guy, lot's of advise on how to set the pogo up correctly for the weight. Money order heading his way tomorrow.
