    Rxp lightweight racing seat

    looking for a lightweight seat for the rxp. i have spent the last 2 days reading threads and searching but still do not have a valid lead for actually purchasing one. i have seen the james bushell seat, but would like to know if there are other options before shucking out that much money. seems most leads, lead to overseas and with shipping and wait time, i dont think thats an option. anyone have some info? thanks

    the problem is that no one wants to pay a fair price for the seat. rotax racing originally made the seat in carbonfiber for $1500 that is without the seat frame and seatcover. to make the seat you have to make a plug and 3 molds (one of the top and one of the buttom and the seatframe). it is time consuming and labor intensive. if there were more people interested i would make one professionally built in either lightweight glass or carbonfiber. i am currently making a totally new front end for the rxp out of carbonfiber which should be ready in 3-4 weeks that will have some unique shape.
