Has anyone here used Bill Bohlen's (Antique T Motorsports) bucket seats?
I want to buy a set, but was hoping one of you had some pictures of them before I have them shipped across the country.
What is the inside dimension between sides either with or without upholstery? Are the backs well attached to the plywood base?
Nick, I will be at Chickasha, North BLDG NE 8-9-10, you can view the seats there.
I am in Central NY, and don't think I will be going to Chickasha. Perhaps someone could snap a couple photos for me?
I hope I am not asking for trade secrets here. I just don't like the look of the Rootlieb seats. Thanks for the help.
Thanks for posting that you will be at Chickasha. If I want a pair of seats, will you bring them if I pre-order a set? Don't know how much room you will have.
Nick, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can exchange with info. and photos.
Brian, Yes we can make that work. I generally bring pre-orders as much as I can carry.

I have a pair of Bill's seats on my speedster. I think their about as good as you can get. Give me a little time and I'll post a photo. I'm a little under the weather right now and don't feel like messing with the whole photo resizing thing.
I bought the double seat for my speedster from
Bill. Also, I bought the frame lowering parts
from Bill. I like the way my speedster turned out.
Should put a picture of it in your profile Michael.
Maybe a little bigger.
Mike, do you have a lot of flat tires that you need to carry 2 spares? Minnesota pot holes?
No. Actually the bottom one has been flat for years. I just figured as long as I had the duplex carrier I might as well show it off.
Bill's seats are made from a thicker and stronger metal than Rootlieb seats which require angle bracing to keep from bending and folding over. Rootlieb seats are very good but do require a four to six inch ell shaped angle bracket made from 3/16ths of an inch thick steel on the outboard part of the seat where you crawl into your Speedster. Don't ask me how I know ;~
