Hi, my name is nolan and I have a vtx 1800c purchased in Brisbane in 03 from PRohonda Rocklea.Presently the bike has 127000 k and runs like a charm,a loud one.In 011 I shipped the bike and myself over to the UK to ride to the IOM TT races,had a ball of a time in the UK and IRELAND.

Back home in bris I ride every week with various groups and cover between 300/500k during the ride, so you can see the seat gets a workout and with me at 140kilos and a big bum

Before I went to the UK, I got the seat remade for the third time here in brisbane and now it needs to be remade again,this time I was going to try an aftermarket seat or get a vtx seat base and play with that.But where to get a seat base or an old seat ???any ideas in aust.as you know buyer beware in the purchase of an aftermarket seat,if it does,t suit, to bad.

I am also thinking of changing the passenger pegs to boards, any adviceI would be grateful.

Cheers nolan.

yeah like most things,priorities change ,bikes are Modded as far as finances will allow.
People move on to new projects.Bikes either become the workhorse,weekly ride etc or sold and onto new toys.

G'day nolan, welcome to the site. Sounds like you do a lot of miles mate. One of these guys must have a stock seat laying around as quite a few have changed to aftermarket seats. Problem might be getting hold of them as the ausie board has been very quiet for a while now. You could try badpenny customs, they may have a seat?

Cheers,
Brian
