OEM Drifter Solo seat on an 800 Classic

Been looking for a solo seat for my classic for a while, but couldn't afford anything I found. Headed out to a local bike salvage yard (Sport Wheels - Jordan, MN) and found a gorgeous, nearly perfect condition drifter seat for $50.
Spent a few hours fabricating a way to mount it on my '01 Classic.

Just wanted to drop a line here in case anyone wanted a how-to on the process.

Sure thing. This is all I have on my phone right now. I'll take a bunch tomorrow. This seat was stock on all 800 and 1500 drifters for a few years.
Work/family willing, I'll be carving up the seat soon for a deeper ride, but I've got a big ride this Saturday, so it might have to wait a little.
If you're interested, I can provide easy and detailed instructions on doing this yourself. In fact, they'd work for a lot of other seats.

Let me know.
