They are using my bike to make three seats: a template prototype to replace the stock seat, a seat someone else has sent them (don't know the specs on it) and a custom seat for me. My seat I'm trying to get taller which is going to be hard to do because I also want to take out the forward slope. I don't know how their template is gonna sit but I think they are making it a little lower to deal with the slope issue. When they are done making it I will ride it and let you know how the prototype rides and my custom rides.
See the problem is their upholstery is a lot thicker than stock, so if you make the seat taller than the front edge of the underbody(of the seat) when you beef up the front and you stretch the upholstery over it, it will give you a kind of bulbous front to your seat so when I go back on monday we'll see if they can make it taller, eliminate the slope and make it aesthetically pleasing.
