The seat is a simple bench design. It is 25" wide by 8' long, made with eight 3.5" wide boards attached to six runners. It is bolted to the seat frame. A gap in the center board allows the brake lever to pass through. A simple aluminum panel for the brake lever sits in the gap. While the seat lacks lounge chair comfort, it does allow up to ten passengers(five on each side) a place to sit.
