That looks like passport size, so would probably fit fairly well.

Might have to sort a latch out

Think the latch might be problematic on the Riders but not insoluble. It's that grab rail thingy which would cause problems IMHO. Something I will have a look at when I finally get mine home. I really want to fit a rack and small topbox too.

Only ridden it for about 2 miles so no opinions on the comfort of the thin seat which looks longer than a C90 seat.

Maybe get it reupholstered with more foam?

Looks "do-able" based on a quick reference to my seat. Might be some slight variations though?

Yeah, the latch is definitely something that would need to be investigated.

I find the seat OK for a short jaunt - especially when I'm sitting over the rear suspension mounting area. But after say a 40 or 50 mile run I'm finding that numb bum is setting in.

I could upholster the original seat but by the time I buy another seat cover, I think spending a couple of extra tenners for a ready made option, isn't too bad?

Bit i did on the 12v cub seats may help you.

viewtopic.php?f=57&t=31846

Not seen any photos of the seat catches and brackets on the riders or any of the other copy cubs,so if you could post some that would be great.

Looks like the Golden Spokes seat is about an inch longer but it looks like that could be accommodated with the rear grab rail...

Photobucket is being an arse asking for subscription and imgur just seems to be ridiculously convoluted to upload an image and share right now...

Thanks for the photos will copy them and add them to the seat post i did if thats ok.

Looks like with a bit of work you could fit a stock square headlight cub seat bracket to them and still keep the plastic tintail.
