Seat/windshield measurements

Say, any of you guys out there with roadsters, hope you can help me. What is the average height from top of windshield to top of seat cushion? I am limited for space and am 6'2" and this is presenting a question for me. Thanks

What i did was to block the seat where I thought it might work and then set in it to see if I were comfy.. I don't know of any measurement but you could measure your daily driver to get an idea..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

Forget the "average height" you make it what YOU need. After the body is set up put something to sit on, make a line across the windshield posts with a string to see if your eyes are below it, that sort of thing.

The wind can really be hard on you, it depends on the windshield and how it racks back too. But you really need to do what you need, just mock it up.
