I stumbled across this cafe build on Instagram and my favorite part might be the seat. Anyone know who makes it, or know where you can get one very similar?

Does it look like and modifications would need to be made to the frame to accommodate this seat?

Thanks!

Pretty sure it's custom made.

A fair bit of work is needed to the rear of the subframe. You need to delete the rear light and indicators, which would also include all the wiring that's back there.
The rear of the subframe also then needs to be totally re-shaped/a new hoop welding on.

Not sure how great it would be, look how low it is... the standard seat is probably a good inch taller. With standard footpegs, the ergo's on that bike would be horrible!

Touché. Definitely looks good though! Form over function it would appear though, based on your critique, at least for the average-sized rider.

I like the look. I visited my local fabricator last week to ask about doing this: see image. View attachment 9873
Be interesting to see if they can manage that. If you look at a lot of the builds with short seats, like the Holographic Hammer Scrambler, there is nowhere to put the ECU...
The HH Custom just had it exposed bolted to the bottom of the seat. A bit ugly and very vulnerable. Real lack of space on the Scrambler, everything is really crammed in there!!

Ive been having a peek under the seat. IS it as east as buzzing off the rear hoop at point (A) and welding in a bar with new light fixtures mounted?

I lose the glove box, but love the look so i am ok with it. I did my best to size the two images and mark point (A) for reference.

imagine what would happen if you came off the back of that seat?
bounced off by the rear shocky?? Tyre might do some serious damage, (cheese grater), on bodily appendages?

Stumbled across this as I was looking to get a scrambler and get it made like this. Please share your experience.

Could gain more room with a Braille ultra light weight battery that is half the size of stock. There should be plenty of room to do what you are looking at with the bob tail. To each their own, that is the beauty of building your dream bike.
