    I finally figured out the style of seat I want. The long, simple shaped, ribbed seat. Flat, maybe a tiny but upswept in the back. Brown leather color. Where can I get one? I've seen a few users with them here.
    I like these

    do some Google research on fiberglass seat pans. I had never worked with glass prior to making my pan.
    My local favorite bike mechanic had a great guy to do the upholstery. All in all it came out about the same price as an aftermarket seat, but its mine, and its what i wanted.
    Just my 2c.

    For something as non-complex as a brat seat, you may if you already haven't done so, is compare what the cost would be to bring the final product to a leather upholsterer. Really, if you have the tools and patience, the only work you would have to do yourself is cut your pan or cut your existing, mount brackets (which you're probably going to have to do regardless is you purchase a pre-made seat), get the proper foam, and pick your leather or vinyl from a leather craft store. Done.

    if you check out my build thread, I built mine out of a skateboard deck. it's not the most beautiful seat out there, but it cost me less than $50, does the job for now and looks way better than stock.

    I love the idea of one with a removable rear pod, so you can go between styles
