Default Discreeet 2up seat with fender chop, lowered shocks

Hey all, im looking for a 2 up seat (unfortunately) thats minimal and can go with a rear chop, i want my chop very short but also have a GF that wants to come for rides on my new 883 Iron, fortunately shes not very heavy. Ive had a dig around and found a nice short Biltwell 2up which looks good. Can any of you point me in the right direction or have any pics of 2up seats on a chopped 883? Also, advice on short shocks that are forgiving on pillion passengers. Really appreciated any insight and advice you guys can give.

Iron has 2.5 inches of rear travel stock unlaiden.
Chop you mean the fender not further chop to the shock length.
But, shorter shocks info requested!

No passenger will be comfortable IMO.
Search Phantom Pillon...goes on with suction cups.
FWIW You desires are similar to mine and I treat my pillion as emergency seating.
Anyway, good luck in you project.

Some advice, regarding riding with a passenger. By all means go for looks when you ride solo, but for heaven's sake forget looks and buy something that is going to be comfortable for your passenger, especially if you would like her to ride along more than once! Sitting over the rear wheel is not as comfortable as sitting on the front seat and the ladies in our lives have wider sit-bones than we slim-hipped chaps. They need a nice wide comfy seat!
