Got the seat back, it's pretty good for the price. (under $200 for foam, vinyl, and work). It's not quite as symmetrical as it could be, but it looks like the fact that the material had to be riveted to the pan didn't help. And while it's not perfectly contoured to the tank and fender, it does fit the countour of my ass pretty well, and that IS what's important right? It's supposed to be a bike I can ride after all. It's a rigid, so I'll be happy for as much of the "slightly overstuffed" thing as I get.

 
I do like the black piping outline around the seat, which is a little callback to the design of the original XS 650 seat.
