Building your dream bike, one weekend at a time
Here is a guide to building your own custom Cafe Racer, Scrambler, or Tracker.
Choosing a Seat Package
OPTION 1: INTEGRATED TAILLIGHT PACKAGES
Both the Slammer Seat and the Cafe Racer Seat are available with an Integrated Taillight bracket. This means that the seat with comes with a cutout in the rear of the seat where a Plug n Play Lucas style Taillight can be fitted. When going this route, you will make your stock taillight irrelevant.
Option 1a: If you'd like to eliminate the rear fender, you can choose between a Rear Mount system (most popular) or Side Mount system. The Seat with Rear Mount Plate - No Fender option is the most popular choice. With this option you will mount your license plate directly off the rear of the frame. The Seat with Side Mount Plate - No Fender option is a more extreme, custom look. With this option the License Plate is mounted vertically on the lower shock bolt. You can mount this on either side of the bike BUT please ensure that your exhaust system does not prohibit this placement.
Option 1b: If you'd like to keep the rear fender, get the option Seat With Fender Mounted Flat Plate. The Flat Plate License Plate Bracket will mount directly into the Stock Taillights mounting holes.
OPTION 2: STANDARD SEAT PACKAGES
Both the Slammer Seat and the Cafe Racer Seat are also available in a standard configuration with no taillight. This means that the seat will be a direct stock replacement. However, this does not mean that you can't eliminate the fender if you choose to. See below.
Option 2a: For a classic look that retains the rear fender, try the Keep your Fender - Retro Taillight option. The Retro Tailight is a low profile LED upgrade over the stock taillight. The Taillight and license plate bracket come in one unit that bolts into the stock taillight mounting location.
Option 2b: If you'd like to eliminate the rear fender, you can choose between the Fender Elimination - Lucas Style package (most popular) or Fender Elimination - Cateye Style package. Both of these packages come with a plug n play Tailight, Underplate, and rear mount license plate bracket.
Please note: With ALL options, you will need to relocate your turn signals to the shockmount which you can do easily with one of our Turn Signal packages available in the Lighting section below.
Adding a Turn Signal Package
When you upgrade your seat, it becomes necessary (and very beneficial) to relocate and replace your stock indicators. The stock turns signals are bulky and prevent you from achieving a truly "custom" look. To take out the guesswork try one of our Turn Signal Packages. These packages come with the necessary Signals, Brackets, and Harnesses for an easy installation in minutes. Plus they look damn good. Availalbe with Retro, Bullet, or Square indicators. Chooce the look that is best for you and rest assured that the hardest part of the process is choosing which one best suits your style and taste.
