    Who der done a Ducati seat?

    In my quest for a Carlson replica, I will need to mount a Monster seat to the subframe. Anyone besides him ever done that? I will be asking him for pictures, but I thought I would check and see if anyone else had done it, and get the details -

    Oh yeah... google the "forever hawk" and you'll come up with the first guy to do it. He's active on the hawkgt.com list, and I think Robb Z. had something to do with that project also, you could give him a shout too.

      Looks like the ForeverHawk site is down (???), but here's Ross Dale's pic on the My Bike page:

      Nice guy. He sold me a Muzzy exhaust coupling once, and teases me for using it to make a straight pipe!

        Unfortunately , I've gotten a new computer (not really, the old one really was a pile o' poo), and neglected to email my pictures of the subframe mods to myself. I'll have to rehook that computer to retrieve those pics.
        BTW, Douglas, thanks for posting the picture.

          Just to put it on the record, here's the chronology of the Monster tail, as I understand it.

          Ross Dale did it first, then Robb Z. I think I was next, followed closely by Chis Mulhall. As of this posting, I don't know that anybody else has completed it yet.

          Any of this could be wrong, so feel free to correct me.

            AlxKCrlsn, I dig your bike..You should post some pics in the members ride section so I can drool over it without surfing around to find it..
            I like your exhaust, I have been pondering a way to do mine so i can keep my passenger pegs and still show off the sexy single sided..
            I bet your bike rumbles! How much performance do you lose when you shorten everything like that? Big loss of back pressure..or..??

              Soul, I think you have the same exhaust headers there as Alex does, so you're already halfway there!

                I know this is an old post, so hopefully you guys are still around. As a cheap and easy solution to switching to the monster seat, is there any type of removable solo seat cover that you can just slip on and off over the passenger seat to get a similar effect?

                  To the best of my knowledge, nobody makes a solo seat cover. This is a stock seat I had recovered by a local custom guy before I went with the monster seat:
