Our DropSeat kit eliminates a visual flaw that has bothered us from the start with our own Bobber: the seat position. Though the original seat is comfortable and provides with proper ergonomics, we felt that the distance between the seat and the rear fender didn’t look right. Even though the Bobber doesn't have a rigid frame like its ancestor from the 50ies, the seat should be positioned a little lower, thus closer to the rear wheel instead of floating above. We therefore decided to tackle the problem without making changes to the bobber concept, of course.
The result is our DropSeat kit, a new seat mount with two adjustable heights. The first position is very close to the original one, while the second one provides with 4 cm (1,6 inch) lowering. Still it very comfortable to ride (of course, body size and physiognomy come into play here). This means you can raise the seat again without original parts if necessary - e.g. for longer tours.
The DropSeat kit is made of stainless steel to prevent rusting, even if the powder coating is damaged. Particularly important for those who ride without mudguards or shortened ones. To ensure adhesion of the powder coating when the seat position is frequently adjusted, the kit is sandblasted before coating.
The visual impact of the DropSeat kit is particularly impressive in combination with a compact seat such as the Triumph Statement seat. Our seat bracket is also characterized by the fact that it fits elegantly into the rear and does not stick out from under the seat like the original bracket.
