Default moved the seat back a couple inches...

the previous owner of my 40 was kind enough to throw in a couple mods with the truck.. tonight I got around to doing the "seat mod" which adds a couple plates up front, then you flip the rear supports around and the result is it moves the seat back about 2".

Man, what a cool mod!!! So easy, well thought out, yet eloquently simple.. and the difference is significant, all the way back is almost too far, but I may run that for city cruisin, though I'd have to move it up for wheelin for sure. All the way back would be perfect if you were 5-11 or so, I'm sure Shorty's already done something similar and then some.

anyway, too fun, thanks PO!

the can is for scaling purposes only..

Cool. Bonni got me that for fathers day from Classic Cruisers for $35?

I knew it would be a good thing.

More leg room can be had by moving the seat "up" as well. Just my .02

Looks good.
