Hi there.

I'm restoring a VGL1T from 1958.

For now, i have done the things below
- Installed a Pinasco "Flytech" ignition: https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/ignition+pinasco+flytech+_25356836

- And a Pinasco crankshaft: https://www.sip-scootershop.com/en/products/racing+crankshaft+pinasco+_46006200

I hope to make some more upgrades as i go!

my question, is it possible to put a long seat on it - as on the GS150, without cutting the frame stuts?

Can anyone help me or have any idea of how i can get a bench seat to fit the VGL1T/VB1T frame?

Best regards
Tammes

If you change out the seat to a bench seat, how would you ever choke the carb?

With some imagination I don't think it would be too difficult to come up with solution for a choke pull. Maybe as easy as routing the existing cable to a new location with a simple pull knob. I guess it depends on how bad he wants a sport seat.
