Jockey Seats

Right, it's back to my old discussion of jockey seats.

I think I've decided what I want... a delta layout, with a triple at the front, and then two doubles at the back.. with back rests and front grab rails for the front seats on the rear double jockeys (see attached - not very good quality I know!)

What I'd like to know, is where people suggest getting them from?

Also, I was thinking about a stainless grab rail for the front bench seat to make it more viable to sit on... whiteshoes has one in his rib, and it looks good!

I also want to fit two fuel tanks into the rear jockeys to give me a greater range.


Any helpful pointers/contact details would be great.

Make sure the triple drivers seat has a backrest for the driver to give him something to lean on when no passengers are on the seat. (I think I see this in you diagram).

I eventually ordered my double from Humber, it was expensive but they all seem to be expensive. Especially for what they are - a bit of GRP with a bit of foam on the top! Should arrive in a couple of weeks I think, then it will be out with the drill and Sikaflex

Look at some of Tim's posts - great stuff on making your own. Layout looks perfect to me. Don't go for foam that's too soft on the seats.

Tims method is spot on, built my suicide seat and fuel tank cover using his methods, turned out great. Ordered my double jockey freom leeway, alot cheaper than ribcraft and humber etc!

The prices were the same when I got my quote .... £335 for a double jockey from Leeway (just checked on the website) and £336 from Humber. Except that I had to collect the former, while the latter arranged delivery to the container packers, which pretty much sealed it for me! No idea about ribcraft didn't ask them...

Foot loops to go eith your new jockeys

Have you considered footloops to go with the new jockeys.

I have installed them and recommend them highly.
