    Yeah, I think I have one, only used it once.  I’m not home just now, likely get back Wednesday.  I’ll send you the part number.  Think it’s a Harley Sundowner, used it on my 2011 FXWG. 
    I’m in SA but it’d be easy to send. I’ll flick a pic.

    I’m not getting home today, likely Saturday.  My wife has brain cancer, she had further surgery on Monday so I’m staying next to the hospital till she‘s stable.
    On the seat.  I read your other posts that also mentioned a seat and your preference to sit back.
    Thing to note is that two up seats by their nature are designed to give the passenger more space and that comes by reducing the riders real estate by a couple of inches.  I’ve attached file pics of the stock seat and the Harley Sundowner seat.  I admit the Sundowner seat is comfy and my wife certainly preferred it as the Sundowner stays wide and doesn’t taper in like the stock seat, but it does push the rider forward a tad. 
    Something to consider.

    Ratbob, I have no words, stay strong.

    BLKOPS, any of the Dyna seats from 2006 up will fit your bike, check out the second hand bikes at the dealers, once you know what you want you can track one down, they pop up often in the online market places.

    Good idea, Hilly’s a wise fella.  No point buying my Sundowner seat only to find it doesn’t put your ass in the right position, which is why I raised it. 
    Wife’s going well so I’m heading home tomorrow evening.  I’ll post a couple of pics of the actual seat for extra info.

    If you’re interested let me know.  It fits your bike but only you can decide on the comfort factor.
    Cheers

    This looks amazing ! And very comfy, but I’m just concerned that the rider seat is the same as the one I have now it looks short ? Does it push the rider forward ? Would you be able to measure is for me by chance ?

    Or you could find a good upholsterer with experience with bike seats, pull the staples from the bottom of yours and remove the cover, buy an electric carving knife and cut back the seat cushion behind where your arse goes and shape it until it is comfortable, then get it recovered.

    That would probably cost a lot more than buying a new seat though ?

    Dunno. And you're not going to know until you talk to one and get an idea on price for the custom recover.
    But, it's probably going to be cheaper than buying one without being able to try it for comfortable fit, and then finding its still doesn't give you enough room.
    And you will have started the journey of learning stuff about doing things with your own bike.
    Any one have any names for good custom motor trimmers or custom bike seat work in Perth?
