I dont mind telling you what I paid The guy who made it found the seat pan somewhere and offered it to anyone on a shovelhead forum i belong to for a new build It just so happens i needed one and he offered his leather work services He told me he would give me a smokin deal and I believe he did He charged me 150.00 for the entire thing I feel his art and workmanship is worth a whole lot more than that But I have no idea what he would normally charge someone

I'd like to here some experiences with the Chopshox too. I looked at buying some but the seller told me they don't have dampener built in. If this is the case I can't see the benefit as they would just be a fancy looking spring that happens to look like a shock absorber?

Maybe this will help Its a thread on the jockey journal about them Im not expecting mine to ride nice or i would buy a new Harley Shit I can barely make a couple hundred miles on my swingarm shovel and my body is killing me So I might just go with the traditional springs and make the best of a rigid
