Very interesting seat design. An idea possibly for my build. Been having problem with the seat design stage recently. These wooden seat boards may be the way forward. Just need the weather to turn the corner to warmth as garage is unheated. Third day of snow conditions, was heavy snow fall on Saturday night. Area just coming to terms with it (the Snow) not had the stuff for past eight years out of practise regards snow removal. The only people welcoming the cold are the farmers for bug and pest control. Well all the best for your farm project and looking for pics of the farm from you Jeff Hughes.

What I can't figure out is what happens when that front suspension fork wants to compress? Since the front frame is attached at the dropouts and then at the gooseneck, it would appear to restrict front fork compression and put great stress on the gooseneck as it resisted the movement.
