I don't know about the brackets for the Sundowner. I also have a police bike. If you wanted to keep the comfrotable police seat, Mustang makes an nice pillion passenger seat. It is mades from the same material as the police seat. Just another option if you looking for a seat for a passenger. I also installed a detachable backrest on mine. I am having a chrome luggage rack made to replace the radio plate on mine.RoadKingTrax said:I have a 2005 FLHPI Im trying to "civilianize". I want to remove the stock air ride seat and put on a Sundowner 2up-Seat. Does anyone know what special brackets I may need or anything I dont forsee as an install problem?
Your bike will have the hole in the fender. Plugged with a black plug. Where WuzFuz used a wire. I used a extra long wire tire. Let the nut slide down the wire tie, then feed the wire tie up through hole in the fender. Turn the nut in place, then stip off the wire tie and let it drop. You will thank us for the info on getting the nut in place. The first one I did with my hand and long needle nose pliers. It is very hard to get around the rear tire to get the nut in place. I had to have my wife help since her arm are smaller. When she pulled her arm out black form dirt under the fender, she was not happy.:clap:RoadKingTrax said:Thanks for the replies, I wouldnt think HD would make a different rear fender for police bikes and consumer. Thats funny that you had to drill yours out, guess they werent too concerned about the afterlife of the bikes. I have yet to take out the lower part of the mounted seat, and didnt know if the welded clip was in the frame. Thanks again....
That is true and there is a bracket w/ two bolts welded on it that fit through those two holes, from underneath the fender, that the H-D solo and many other manufacturers mount their solo seat brackets too. It is also used to hold the frame/baterry cover on a cop bike.:huh: :xhere:makes sense the 2 bolts fwd of that would be for the solo.
Any ideas on what the part number is for the bracket, or where I might be able to find the number or hopfully the part? I've been searching the net and harley catalog and came up empty.
