Passanger seat conversion to seat cowl?

Since no Rear seat cowls are available anywhere, I am considering gutting the cushion off the passenger seat and making it into a cowl...

Has any one tried this already by any chance? I am just not sure if stuff could be sticking out in a way that would complicate things unexpectedly... Feel bad about doing it, but no one else is ever sitting on my beast

I have a cowl, a passenger seat and a cowl luggage rack (custom) and like you, no one will be on the back of mine. That's what the Duc Hyper is for.

I'm not planning to use the luggage rack, so would this make any sense to you? Just an idea...

I have a rear seat that doesn't have a cushion if you want to make luggage rack similar to BTTB above.

there is no way you'll be able to make something that's presentable by hacking apart a passenger seat.


rear cowls are out there, you'll find one
