New Rich Phillips 07-09 Nightster Iron Sportster Spring Solo Seat Mounting Kit

This is a brand new Bolt On Spring Solo Seat Mounting Kit for the 07-09 FI Sportsters, Nightsters and Irons!
This kit was designed and manufactured by Rich Phillips. And is currently only available through our stores (Rich Phillips and Motheroadcustms).
Now 07-09 Sportster owners can mount a spring solo seat to there bikes without modifications!
This kit is is completely bolt on, and all the parts are included for a spring solo seat mounting, except the seat. Seats can be purchase in my listings and my store.
The kit is easy to install.
Some that have this kit installed have said that the seat is comfortable because of the extra cushion from the springs.
There is no relocation of the ECM required. The ECM is tucked up in the box under the seat.
With this kit there is no modifications, no welding, no cutting wires need for the fender because, this auction includes the panel to cover the hole in the fender. It is shaped steel and covered with black leather. This panel uses the screw that is already in the fender for mounting.
If you don't want to use the fender panel you can save the cost of the panel and purchase the kit listing that dose not include the fender panel.
The kit is sturdy professionally Powder coated steel.
The kit also included coil springs and necessary mounting hardware, a steel chrome plated hinge with a stainless steel bolt and stainless steel acorn nut.
It also includes stainless steel acorn nuts that are used to attach the box and the two rubber bumpers on the bottom of the frame cover.
The rubber bumpers protect the frame.
The kit has rubber welting to protect the wiring that passes through the hole under the seat. And the welting is also used on the bottom of the box to protect the frame covers powder coat.
With this kit nothing is permanently changed so one can switch back to the original seat at any time. This kit and others can be found in my store available for sale under hardware. You can also reach me at 314-392-7841 to ask questions or to place an order.
