    Low Rider Custom Seat with Gel Insert

    I purchased a seat and had it contoured at the front to relieve the gonad pressure point present on the OEM seat.  To that a large gel insert was installed and a new cover made.  This was done by a local custom seat maker. 

    It didn't work for me.  It seems the only seat I can ride on is a Russell Day-Long so I had one made which means I need to sell the gel seat.

    The last picture is of the Russell Day-long to illustrate how extensively Russell modified the seat front to relieve the gonad pinch.

    Asking $225 Price is OBO.

    Adding to my seat description - The cover has a slight texture to us so the its not slippery and you stay planted until you deliberately move.

    Also just to let you know I paid $400 to have the gel pad installed and the new cover made.

    I wouldn't say that it sits any lower.  My intent was comfort not height.  I had the front of the seat contoured to prevent the squeeze at the front, but don't think that changed the height.
