Nice job. Been doing that conversion for years on my Urals too.

Lots of options. Recent swap to a Harley police saddle here after scoring a great deal on one. Used garage door hardware and did a bit of dumpster diving for the mounting bracket. Ended up just a bit taller than the stock saddle.

Gene Halopaw just notified me that my Ural to Harley Police Solo conversion kit is complete and will be mailed tomorrow. Just wanted members to know that I consider the cost reasonable, $182. I'll report on the difficulty of installing it with the kit, comfort factor of the seat, etc.

I received the Holopaw conversion kit, however, it appears that the kit will make my Harley solo seat much higher than the OEM bench seat. Anyone here familiar with the conversion, higher height, etc? Looks like it may raise the seat height to almost 40 inches.
