    Highly unlikely their would be a second rider, but if there was, with no engine, the center of gravity could be an issue--some wheelie bars would look cool.

    Haven't thought that far ahead yet. Depends on how I finish the sissy bar. It will probably be done the same.
    I was disappointed in the Tech football game, but seeing uga loose like they did helped make up for it. THWG!

    This seat weighs a ton, but so does the fork. I don't see any wheelie poppin happening.
    Doubt there will ever be a rear rider anyway.

    Seat looks good mounted to those old forks, angle looks spot on!

    Funny...I didn't notice a discrepancy on that side of the pic. My mind must have just thought, 'Savannah fountain with obligatory awesome Kingfish bike?...check' :bigsmile:

    That's pretty slick man . I think I like the look better that way with out the crutch gives it a unique & cleaner look .

    I kinda like it without the sissy bar too.

    With that high back seat, it really doesn't need the bar.

    I already have a helmet like that. I got rid of the wings a long time ago.

    I was actually prepared for it to be completely oversized and look like crap. These Electras are pretty big frame and that PHAT springer is huge, so it works together. Visually I think it would be more balanced if there wasn't such a gap between the wheel/fender and the seat, but I can't lower the seat any.

    The Midnight Garden Ride with the Savannah Bicycle Campaign is Oct 8th for now. It wouldn't surprise me if it get moved though since Hurricane Matthew is headed our way.

    Thanks Luke, it all just kinda worked out that way. I didn't have to tweak the forks or anything.

    Have you considered using a rear rack for filler or place to mount one from?.

    Maybe some vinyl skirting around the bottom of the seat to give the appearance that it sits lower?

    Looks like you're having some fun on that big 'ole hog Kingfish. You've got the bottom of the seat matching the radius of the rear wheel pretty well. Doesn't look too shabby on there. i'll bet it's comfy.

    I think the seat looks great just as it is, no need for a filler panel or anything there...
