    Cheers Everyone,

    I'm looking for a seat for my extrusion rig. I'm 6'4" 220# with a 38-40" waist. I currently have a authentic Bride GIAS seat, which is nice, but just a bit too tight for long stints. I'm considering selling the Bride so I'll have around 500 bucks to drop on its replacement. It's gotta be well padded and comfortable. Any advice would be GREATLY appreciated!

    HELP!

    Evo III is technically one of very few "big boy" bucket seats. Unfortunately they aren't exactly cheap. But darn do they oooze quality..

    Great solution, but there doesn't appear to be the necessary mounting bracket. It appears I'd have to purchase an additional mounting solution, which would take this far out of my budget. Am I missing something?

    Why not buy a road car seat from a second hand car parts dealer? Seems to be a popular option around where I live. ;)

    Don't know how flexible your setup is but I use a 03 Lancer seat that I got for $100 AUD from a wreckers, and it is very comfortable so you could try something like that. Will just be a bit hard to mount.
