Put an 08 classic lt seat on my 09 custom...thoughts?

So my bike came with the saddlemen renegade solo seat. . . wife wanted to join me from time to time on the road. . . so I found this gem on CL for FIFTY BUCKS! couldn't pass that up for an unused LT seat.

It fit with a few washers under the adapter just fine. . . but man it looks out of place or something. I dunno. It's actually quite comfortable for me, as I'm tall and it sits higher than the renegade.

What do you all think? Out of place??

I put a seat off a Classic on my '07 Custom that I got off CL for $50 as well. It's not the LT one with the chrome studs though. I think it would look much better on your blacked out SE without the studs.

Ya, I agree. Not a fan of the stud look on this particular application. Perhaps I can find someone who wants to trade

I think it would look neat if you could color the studs black, Don't know what would stick to it though. Probably be more work than what it is worth. But still would look cool, IMO

LoL, that's wild you mentioned that..I was just browsing google with "how to black-out studs". . . I guess someone used enamel paint with some success...but man, that's gonna be a lot of detail work to get it perfect!

Greats minds think alike, but by that theory so should the bad ones. I wonder what category we would fall in.

I was going to mention keeping a paint marker in your tool compartment, that way when you rubbed the paint off, you could always touch it up on the go.

if you had something else with studs it would look fine, as a stand alone it does seem out of place. But then again, is it the ride or the cool factor
