When Harley-Davidson developed a new chassis for 2009 Touring models, Fat Baggers, Inc. (FBI) created a new Drop Seat Kit ($1,799.95 with unpainted side panels, with painted side panels $2,050.95) that would alter the Motor Company's rear frame section to lower the riding position approximately 3 inches.
According to Kent Reed, sales and marketing agent with FBI, with this kit they were able to achieve 3 inches of drop in seat height without sacrificing suspension, frame clearance or seat comfort to give riders a better footing for starting/stopping stability and more confidence when they ride, stop, and take off.
We stumbled upon the FBI booth at the '09 Laughlin River Run and it just so happened they were getting ready to install the Drop Seat Kit on a '09 Street Glide. We snapped some photos of the install, which you can see the full article on sale July 28, 2009!!!!!
