Are you getting enough fiber?
One of the most distinguishing features of a flat/street tracker is the seat unit (along with the big wheels and wide handlebars). The traditional flat tracker seat unit comes in many flavours, but personally I prefer the XR750-styled one. There are lots of people cranking out these babies, like Storz. Most are made from fiberglass, but it's also available in higher spec carbon fiber. I decided on a seat unit from a Czech company called pro-carbon. It cost 234 € including postage and it was delivered promptly to my doorstep. Not cheap, but not too expensive either, considering the quality. It is incredibly light. Now I only have to resist the urge to leave it unpainted:-)
