    got bored and decided to make something.....

    I have seen a few different style rear seats for the fzr. But most aren't available anymore or are very expensive. The phx fab full carbon seat is by far my most favorite seat ever for the fz skis. It just makes the ski look ten times better, just like the bullet marine seat did for the gpr's.. I got bored one day and decided I wonted to make a simple rear seat with a good function. It is completely hollow with full ventilation.. It is made completely out of fiberglass. I made a mold of the rear seat and keep drawing sketchs on the rear till I got somewhat happy with a design. Its still not completed at the moment but isn't far away. It is still in primer and still needs a little more sanding in certain areas. I havn't decided yet if I am gone leave back completely open or do some kind of wire mesh or have some metal laser cut for the openings with a small holes in the metal.. Even had someone say something about lizardzkins, its a waterproof fabric kind of like a outerwear that could be used to let air out and deflect any water that would be splashed on to the seat to prevent from going in the hull. I am open to all suggestions and advice from anyone. I have even thought about possible mass producing these if I had enough people that would be interested in them? It would take some time to get it set up and going but wouldn't mind it at all.. Click image for larger version.

    a bit of constructive criticism the idea is killer just not a fan of the shape and size of the openings theyre too much and don't flow with the rear of the ski
