Seat mounting brackets
« on: May 14, 2013, 07:38:42 pm »
I have gone through the fiche on Ron Aryes site, and I take it that you can’t  buy the brackets on the bottom of the seat. If any one can correct me, please do so. The latch bracket on the rear of the bike’s seat apparently has been loose, or out of adjustment for some time now and has a groove worn into in, so the latch no longer catches. I have taken all three brackets to a local machine shop, and will be having a replacement latch made, along with one other complete set to use on an aftermarket seat I recently purchased. If anybody is interested in a set of brackets let me know. The first run is always the most expensive, more will cut down the price. I will know more tomorrow in regards to how much things will be.

Nope, can't buy the latches separately for some reason.

I have purchased them before in the Emporium from people who set a seat core off to be used for a new seat, like Baldwin or Russell, and didn't need them anymore.

Now that I have sat on my Baldwin GT saddle for a 1,000 miles, I won't be needing any new latches because I will never be switching seats again.
