This seat was took a lot of time to build and as always I learned a few things along the way. I have all the patterns and designs to make this seat again so if you feel like you gotta have it let me know.  I used the SNo3 Dunstal V2 as the platform and then started to figure the best way to get the oil tank integrated into the structure of the seat and all the while not have it show up in the metal work. Aluminum needs to be finished as it is made. The process goes cut, form, planish, sand, weld. Repeat times  1000, then after a while you end up with something your proud of.
