    Mustang Seat: had one on my 650 and loved it so that was the first thing on my to do list...the M%$^%R F%$ (at) (at) R was not an easy install on the 1100. The bracket on the seat would no line up with the stock seat mounting holes. With some worrying, I had to 'force' the alignment. Finally got the seat installed. After that, the passenger seat install went as expected.

    Luggage Rack: I hate wearing a backpack on my rides so guess where it's going.

    Sorry, no pics yet. As soon as I finished, I left to meet a buddy at my favorite watering hole. Funny how things get around. He had already heard through the grapevine that I bought a motorcycle and was anxious to check it out.

    Next up...ISO Grips w/ Throttle Bosses.

    I like the seat a lot. Had one before on my v star 650. I bought all of my recent upgrades from this stores.ebay.com/GM-Cycles_YAMAHA_W0QQcolZ2QQdirZQ2d1QQfsubZ6894654QQftidZ2QQtZkm.

    HAWK, just looking at your 'mod pics', how much weight can the rear rack hold? I'm looking to put on a rear rack so I can get a hard trunk. Thanks

    I had the same rack on mine and it is really solid. I'm sure it would hold anything you'd want to carry on your bike.

    I bought a mustang seat for my 1100 custom last winter and love it. Seat seems to get better as it breaks in. Also hear good things about Ultimate seats although they are a little higher in price.

    I think I remember reading 10 lbs somewhere but I'm pretty sure I've carried more than that on the rack.
