Does anyone know if I can make the seat from a 1300 s, t, r, or any other model fit the c? I know the rear mounts on the driver seat are different, but I was wondering if I could change the rear fender mounts to the straight set, and if anything else needed to be changed.

I think it would be easier to change the fender rails, then redrill your C fender for the R/S/T fender. Then you would be able to use the R/S/T seat.

Ultimate seats brackets are attached to the inside of the seat pan, so to swap brackets, you would have to remove the seat skin from the pan.

I put an R model rear fender on my C then added all the Ultimate goodies. I had a set of R model outer fender rails, but had to get a few things for the R fender -- to include the R model inner fender support. You'd need that to attach the outer rail (first two bolts), and that's where drilling new holes in the C fender would come into play. You get those R model rails on and you can use the OE seat you mentioned (R,S,T) or get an Ultimate Seats for Honda VTX 1300 R, VTX 1300 S, and VTX 1300 T
Go to Partzilla.com to compare the parts on their fiche pictures. I got the set of outer rails from a salvage yard in Florida and then had them powder coated black -- looked like new.
