    Hey there.
    The seat is made out of a skateboard and it was unconfortable, in fact.
    The problem was it's angle, wich I have already improved, and not the fact that it's made out of plywood and without cushion.
    Now it's almost horizontal and quite alright to ride.
    I meant for using this build on the RRB Build Off, but it happened almost overnight, and I did'nt document it.
    Thanks and keep it up.

    Thanks Nick_ish
    I also use "skateboard seats" on other bikes. Check viewtopic.php?f=6&t=52776

    There is another idea, from fellow builder Karfer on his Galt machine (check previous RRB builds), that might work out really fine, but that he did not finish for some reason: using a shovel!

    Keep it up
