EL PRESIDENTE Top Shelf Customs

With the battery in place, the next item on the list was mounting the compressor that operates the Rigid Aire seat. Since the compressor is not very big, we were able to mount it under the transmission as well. The airline runs from the compressor up the seat post, and over the oil bag to the air bags. The oil lines were next on the list. We really didn’t give much thought to them until it was time to find something appropriate. Our choices were rubber lines with some sort of hose clamp or steel lines with some sort of fitting. We went for the stainless steel lines from Matt Hotch Designs. With the help of Steve McCann, Al and Barry were able to bend and connect the lines without a hiccup. With everything mechanical finished we had a few styling issues to take care of. The seat pan and its white with silver metalflake diamond tuck came from Bossley Cycles, and Azteca Custom Cars in Long Beach rolled the purple piping.
