Does anyone happen to have an old seat pan that’s rusted away and you’re just going to throw away?

I’m going to use a fiberglass PR seat and the mount that they use is a little funky and I don’t think the fiberglass will support weight.

My thought is to get an old seat pan and cut out the area with the seat tabs and rivet that to the fiberglass.

This way I can use the original seat mounts and it will be much stronger.

Let me know if you have one.

Thanks

Yes they are cheap, but I was thinking instead of fabricating a bracket and adding thickness to the pan, I would cut out an old seat which would not only give me the mounts I need but support for the fiberglass which seems a little flimsy.

I have a fiberglass pan, but it is not a PR type, and there is not enough clearance for this type of bracket.

When I was considering options, I has thought to add a metal strap to the top of the pan and relieve the padding there. That way you could screw or rivet the bracket to the strap thru the fiberglass.

Looks like I have a Corbin/Gentry king/queen seat with a Commando solid-metal strap and ears bolted to the bottom of the seat. Let me have your email if you'd like a photo

There were some examples of PR seat mounting on this site, but since I don’t have Photobucket I can’t see any of the pictures.

I actually think an old seat with the brackets cut out and riveted in as one piece would work well and support my fat ass.

I think I’m going to use the RGM seat tabs and an aluminum bar. May be the easiest and best way to do this since I can’t find a seat. Thanks anyway.

Thanks, I went and bought a pair of the RMG seat tabs and I’m going to install them on a metal bar. This will also act as a stiffener for the fiberglass seat pan that seems sort of flimsy.
