Firstly, let me thank everyone in advance. Before I bought it last week I did extensive research on these forums and you guys are awesome.

Paid 5K for 2016 NC700X DCT/Puig Windshield/Seat Concepts Low/Center Stand with 8600 miles. Was a little worried about the mileage but bike looks and runs nice, but this is my first bike. Had to ride it home 35 miles on the backseat. lol. Knees are too cramped and when I got off my knees were barking. I'm 45yo and 6'2. Yikes!

Bought the Knight Designs pegs and they help some but the Seat Concepts low seat is 3/4" lower than stock. Would love to trade for standard size if someone has one or willing to buy straight up. You guys think I got a fair deal with the bike? Thanks again to the whole community!82715566_790034194861062_2361724257471299584_n.jpg101190948_790034411527707_6525864229705089024_n.jpg101503613_790034311527717_4083827674391248896_n.jpg101513763_790034418194373_9146927477321367552_n.jpg101585069_790034338194381_1256474712301633536_n.jpg101650263_790034111527737_7732411072472154112_n.jpg101891502_790034104861071_7528792024498044928_n.jpg101951310_790034141527734_2618408253452713984_n.jpg103322231_794804134384068_6840487489150541968_n.jpg104146576_794578101073338_5888639006485996707_n.jpg101503613_790034311527717_4083827674391248896_n.jpg101513763_790034418194373_9146927477321367552_n.jpg101585069_790034338194381_1256474712301633536_n.jpg101650263_790034111527737_7732411072472154112_n.jpg101891502_790034104861071_7528792024498044928_n.jpg101951310_790034141527734_2618408253452713984_n.jpg103322231_794804134384068_6840487489150541968_n.jpg104146576_794578101073338_5888639006485996707_n.jpg

You paid less than I did for the same model version without DCT. I do, however, have the faster color.

That bike looks like it was barely ridden, and the mileage confirms it. All that's really left for you to get is heated grips and lights.

If you got a good deal is really dependent on how you ride it. How long will it take you to ride 5,000 miles? That's about how long it will take you to have gotten a good deal. The bike will do that for you 20 times over and keep going. Just do the maintenance.

As a 6'1" beanpole, my knees feel your pain. I did a Saddle Sore 1000 and I was sitting pillion for a decent part of it. YOLO only once ;)

Can you provide a link to the Seat Concepts seat you own? Perhaps a few photos of the seat from different angles.

I might be interested in a trade. I have a spare lightly used NC seat sitting in a plastic bag on a shelf.

Okay guys, here are some pics I shot today. Seat appears to be in great condition. I will shoot again once I remove the seat. I bought the bike 2 weeks ago and I would like to trade sooner rather than later so I can finally ride it.

Just to be clear I am willing to trade this Seat Concepts Low version for the standard height Seat Concepts seat. I can ship out Priority Mail right away since I have an online business and ship out items every day. If you guys need help figuring out shipping costs, I can help with that too as I have shipping configurations set up from my home.

Thank you in advance and I am fine with the honor system as everyone here in the community seems to be good people.

Cheers. 20200714_185525.jpg20200714_185534.jpg20200714_185542.jpg20200714_185546.jpg20200714_185552.jpg20200714_185607.jpg20200714_185612.jpg20200714_185623.jpg20200714_185647.jpg20200714_185649.jpg

Hey bud, Melensdad passed on the offer due to his wife preferring a Corbin seat instead. You still willing to trade? Thanks in advance..
Replied in conversation, I misunderstood your initial post (my bad) and I can't help you out. Apologies and best of luck.

Don't see a post where you ever made a trade on your seat concepts low seat, I have a stock seat off of of a 2019 NC750x with 750 miles on it and will trade if yours is still available. I assume they are interchangeable

Just to clarify - the seat concepts seat that you want to change out is just the drivers seat? I have a 2015 NC700X dct with the original Honda seat, bike/seat only has 1500 miles on it - in NJ. I would consider swapping or buying you seat outright - Let me know. Thanks.

He is/was looking for a standard height Seat Concepts, not a stock seat. I too had a unused stock seat and I remember he clarified in a July post. Hope that info helps.

It’s worth noting that the OP left this conversation 8 months ago and has not responded since then.
