Thanks Dave! I bought a 20 gauge wide crown staple air gun for 24 bucks. Harbor Freight is great. Sometimes... I like how adjustable the back rest is.

I carry passengers a lot. My main passenger is quite chubby (hubby ;D). Is there a way to make the seat removable for when I have a passenger?

I would contact Bob at Utopia Seats. bob@utpr.com He's very easy to deal with. I'm a huge fan.

Reviving this ancient thread. Would the bracket leave any room to move the backrest back a couple of inches? I want to shave down the hump on my seat where it goes up to the passenger spot so I ride a couple of inches back. The seat goes up right where my tailbone hits, on my HPE. I've got a back injury and this thing looks like it would be great otherwise.
