I was inspired by the Simple Stool posted by Backtothebush so I had to build my own fat boy version. It is a couple inches higher than a chair, quite a bit wider, and has a bit of a curve to the top. I also added some angle aluminum as a kick plate on the bottom runner on both the front and the back. Built entirely of construction grade 2×3’s. Nothing to fancy, but once again, both form and function are spot on!

I think one of these would hold my 320 pounds very nicely. Great job, thank you for sharing

Sturdy bench, but my fatboy will not fit. Picture was taken between Hinton and Jasper Alberta

Thanks all. Norm, I am sure it will hold 320 as that is only 20 more than it is holding now!

Ed, your fat boy is much nicer than mine. Nice looking bike for sure.
