11″ wide seating area. Hot Rod fever, right outta da box! This is one you either like, or don’t. If something appeals to everybody, it would be average and that is not what this seat is about. Like all LePera seats, well designed, made to last and even look good after quite some time has passed. Note: Not for use with a passenger. Note: There will be a gap of 1-1/2″ between seat and tank on all XL models with 3.3 gallon tanks.
