    I read where the seat that is on my bike was optional and it is a weird spring loaded two up seat ( never seen anything like it) and I was wondering if anybody else has or had a seat like this and how I might go about changing it over to a frame mounted seat?

    To convert it depends on what kind of seat you get. If you want to go with a stock seat for your bike. You will have to buy a bracket that bolts to the back fender. I bought one for my 81, but did not use it. I'll make you a deal if you decide to go this way.

    Other seats will require you to drill a hole in the rear fender. Not a big deal either way. Finding the right seat will be the hard part.

    Yours is a carry-over from the days when the seat post actually had something to do with the seat. I had an '80 Electra Glide and I think it was one of the first years they offered the frame mounted seat. I thought it was great, it made you feel like you were sitting in the bike instead of on top of it. I was coming off of a '68 with the two-up saddle and wow what a different feeling.

    Other than maybe having to add the rear mount, changing over to the frame mount should be pretty straight forward.
