As I recal ther are at least three companies who offered a pillion cover for the thundercat.

Skidmarx do a plain white one at about £65, and used to list each model year`s official colours at £95

Powerbronze and pyramid plastics also still list the `Cat, and thay are all slightly different shapes, so you have the choice of which you think is better looking.

Try Ebay and the like for a 2nd hand cover, it Doesn`t cost a lot to paint it to suit. I did the same on a CBR600FT, and although not as good as an original stepped seat design, still looked a lot better than the standard park bench!

i was thinkin of doin that, but would hav to get rid of the pillion grippers leving big holes which would have to be filed down and fiberglassed over. missions!!! found a unpaited track seat that looks sweet as on demon tweeks (trusty old demon tweeks) for £120. but the missus wouldn't be happy not being able to come on the back anymore.

mine is from skid marx at £60 and just a couple of brackets put on the pod and it clips on 2 mins to take off for a pillion to use, can send a pic if you want so you can see up close

I think mine is a Powerbronze, it's secured by 2 colour coded bolts and does not fowl the grab rails.

Not great pics, but here's a couple:

Busters used to sell them, but don't list them on their webshop any more, give them a call otherwise guess Ebay would be your best bet if this is the way you want to go. I think they look heaps better than the double seat.
