Default Rear Seat for Marathon

Has anyone ever made their own rear seat? The cheapest I can find a rear seat is around four hundred dollars. I wish there was a cheaper alternative.

I just finished building a rear seat for my TXT. I used an extra seat bottom and back and went from there. I will post some pics when I get the cart back together.

I finally had a chance to get some pics of the rear seat I built. I took a factory seat back and bottom like the one already on the cart and built the frame. The frame replaces the existing seat back mount and runs into the rear bagwell and mounts to exiting holes in the rear. (I do not like drilling extra holes in a cart when we build stuff for them.) I used square tubing in a couple of different sizes (1.25" and 1"). I used the larger square tubing for the upright that both seat back mount to so that the existing rear top supports will slide down into it and eliminates having to modify them. To keep from having some bulky handles, I just flipped the stock handles from one side to the other. Now all I have to do is come up with a small footrest and prime and paint. Here are some pics:

Very nice work. Clean and simple with great function.
What are the vice grips under the rear of the cart holding.??

Dang, I was hoping noone would notice those. I took these pictures while working on my link bars and those were holding my shock mounts while I cycled the suspension. Vise grips kept me from having to grind off welds as the mounts were moved before final welding.

I figured it was something like that. I do it to.
