Thoughts on adding a passenger seat to bobber style?
So I just bought a Vulcan 800 this past weekend and am designing what I want to do with it. I found a picture of a Vulcan 900 online that I basically want to try and copy the look of this bike as much as possible (colors, paint, etc).
Heres the one catch that I am hung up on. The bike is a single seater and fits only me. And I know my wife AT SOME POINT will want a ride. same with my son and daughter and who knows who else in the future. Most likely, it wont happen very often at all. At least not after the initial ride.
That said, I am trying to figure out a way to make the bike keep the bobber look, yet hold a passenger. I have come up with 2 ideas, wonder what you guys think or if maybe you have seen something similar done before and what it was?
Option 1... keep bike exactly how it is, but have a long 2 seater cafe racer style seat rather than the single bobber style. This way, it could fit 2 people at any given time without doing a thing.
Option 2... keep the single bobber style seat, but have a custom passenger seat made that would bolt on and off onto the frame. Id have to measure and draw it up... but my frame has 2 screw holes in the side that seems like it would work perfectly. I could have the "frame" of the passenger seat made to bolt right into these holes on the frame. Then I could simply take this extra seat on or off at any time. And when its just me 99% of the time, I could keep the original look of the bike without having a second seat.
