It's when we start fabricating the chassis that we'll need the power train. No sense having those components sitting around till then.

Thanks for the suggestion KSIMP88. I've got a line on a pair of C6 corvette seats at the moment. If that falls trough and I come across a pair I'll give them a try.

Yeap, but it's still in the design stage. The bike is a 'massaged' Indian 402 built from scratch and probably powered by a V8. Engine might be a bit of overkill though. Hehe... Need to find a transmission before this build begins too.

Haha yeah...overkill might be a bit of an understatement. I'm intrigued, though - do you have any preliminary sketches of how it's gonna turn out?

/facepalm?

The only seats that compliment high speeds are bucket seats. Real bucket seats.

True, but if KSIMP didn't reference volvo in his post we'd probably assume his account had been hacked, and ban it.

This is true.

Don't we have something setup on the server that autobans him if the word volvo isn't in his post? If not we need that ASAP. I don't want fake KSIMPs running amuck and recommending chevys to people.

I'd invite you to drive my car at ~150MPH for a while, and judge for yourself. But, you live so far away

What does 150 mph in a straight line need a comfortable seat for? 150mph is just as harsh as 75 in a straight line in regards to seating.

Corners man. That's where the bucket seats come in. You don't have to hold yourself in the middle of the seat. The seat wraps around you.

If you don't feel claustrophobic in a bucket seat, it doesn't fit you.

My body sinks into the seat.... I don't have problems.
