Well, the pictures pretty much explain themselves, this is how we made the seatbase using first cardboard and then steel

 
 

We made sure to keep a gap of about 2 mm between the bottom of the seatpan and the frame to allow fot the upholstery which will be done by Marcel Miller.

 
 

The seat will be the loadbearing part on this bike with the fender hanging under it, usually it is the fender that supports all the weight. The seat will be mounted to the frame with 3 M8 bolts that will be sunken into lugs in the frame so that they will be almost invisible when the bike is done. On the back the seat will be supported by the sissybar.

 
 

To be continued.
