Default removable rear seat for a nightster

i just bought a 2009 nightster.. big fan of the way it looks as a solo riding bike. not such a big fan of how it looks with a rear seat without a female on the back.
i was wondering if there was some type of aftermarket rear seat that has custom brackets and makes it removable and attachable as needed? like maybe 4 bolts?

if anyone knows of such a thing please respond

There is a mustang touring seat option with the passenger pillion that is removable.

i went down this road, and kept running into fitment issues, both with pillions and 2-up's. I eventually found comfort, style, and correct fitment in Danny Gray Weekday 2-Up. And its just a single screw (or thumbscrew) to switch back to solo. Although the DG seat is way more comfortable.

I used the pillion like that, that attachs on top of the stock seat. I did'nt like the way it moved. I say get a good two-up, it only takes removing one screw to take it off and on.

you had a pillion like what? if ur talking about the butty buddy i understand what ur talking about for the movement on the version that attaches to the 2up seat. that's why i modified it to have suction cups on it. i now have a spring seat on my bike so i decided to drill a hole in the right place on the butty buddy so i could have it screw into the front hole on the fender. i wasn't exactly ok with my lady on something that suctioned to my bike.
