What I'm suggesting is you do the same, get the seat to work for you. THEN send it to Spencers for the gel foam mod.

That's a great inspirational video on Spencers website if you are just about to get on the track Indy  :123:
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

I appreciate the advice, but the shipping is the issue. At ~$50 each way it adds up fast, especially if it needs to go back for more work.

There's a company called Mean City Cycles in NC that is legend in the HD community, same deal... people have gotten caught in the shipping trap & ended up with more $$ in than buying a custom seat.

 I'll keep looking. If I can't find one maybe I'll do as you suggest & sculpt it, but find a local company for the rest.

 Another pricey option is Corbin.... they are local & will actually build one while you wait, test ride, sculpt, test ride, etc. $$ tho.

Have you thought about fitting a slab of gel in your seat yourself? I've done my Harley and TS, it's really straightforward and not as hard as you may think.

Thanks for the suggestion. Truth is it's not really the gel I'm after, rather the narrower profile. Eventually I'll give in & have a standard seat modified.

 I'm still clinging to denial hope I'll find one.
