just get a memory foam seat base profiled to the shape you want-any local seat repairer will be able to do it. cost is around £120. the stock cover is elastic enough to fit back over it.

Steve,
The popular one many folks have is the Corbin Gunfighter seat. I don't know if it's position would be what you want and it's $500 USD. You can get a new seat from AF1 racing (Austin TX)for $125 USD. and play around with that if your worried about ruining the one you have now. But most likely Papa had the best idea and I'm sure has done this himself. Welcome to the site too! Great people here.

I am a big fan of the Corbin Gunfighter. The Guzzisti I purchased this bike from bought a Corbin, then paid a custom upholsterer $400 to re do it in ostrich leather!

I just had Sargent do mine. Moved the rear rise back an inch plus flatten the drivers area and added their super foam to the front. I didn't do anything to the rear to save money but they certainly would do anything you wanted. You really can't go back too much due to the handlebar reach.

A stock brown seat is still $100 bucks or so from the dealer. I paid $284 to Sargent. Happy with the results.

Rick,

Your $900 seat does look awesome. Nice looking GRiSO all around
