I never can just leave things as they are. Now I have been thinking....wouldn't it be possible to make a seat which articulates (or with two or three parts) ...so that it needn't be removed to break the seat tubes? I am working on it.
ok, I have now found a way to have a two part seat which will allow for a seat-tube break, while still being able to have the front two fibreglass panels in place. Now working on being able to have the rear-side panels fixed. Be very cool if, as well as being able to have the seat of a naked Dragonfly which can be left attached when rigging, it could be done with a fully faired one. That would be worth patenting!
