Solo Seat Options

Hey guys. I recently got my second Roadie. Sold the first one and bounced around and came back, no regrets, reliability, power, and looks are solid. I have a solo rider Mustang seat but I have always wanted to put a spring type saddle (bicycle type) on this one. Who has done this? Recommendations? Kits? Vendors? Any advice appreciated.

It's a really long thread but somewhere in it, he does mount a spring type seat.

Never run out of traction, ideas, and real estate at the same time.
