Transition from this



to this...repro KO seat








Next is different bars...either Z-bars or Euro bars.

I really liked the original look and its been fun these last few years but its getting a bit cramped so going to try something different.

Your bike looks AWESOME!


What's the plan for the cafe seat? I would be very interested if you would like to part with it.

Its comfortable enough once you settle into it but I think Id ride the bike more with less settling in period Wink I may change it back someday! Sort of like all the tight fitting shirts I have in my wardrobe...I know they will fit again one day  Cool

Thanks Peter!

The plan for the cafe seat is to put it into a cardboard box and store it. Its not for sale!

You going to chop the frame and get groovy granny glasses too?
Seriously, have you thought about rear sets to help stretch out a bit?

Rear sets with my 36` inseam leg!!? Are you trying to cripple me!  Wink When I rode Mikes CB750 (with rear sets) I felt my knees where up at my chin. Much to cramped for me. The old bars/seat combo were ok but unlike previous years where I could ride all day like that I now get cramped wrists and neck...not as flexible as I used to be  Undecided

I have couple of bars at home that you are more than welcome to try. If you really must change yours. I really, and I mean REALLY liked your K2 with the cafe seat and your bars, along with the chromed side covers and the polished tank! I understand you would like to do longer days on it, but Z bars?
