If you had been in the UK i could have sold you a brand new (100 miles) one .I do have to wonder why the seat was stolen as it must be one of the most uncomfortable motorcycle seats going.

Sorry to read that it was stolen, how did that happen? they must have access to the seat from inside....

I was reading other comments in the forum and one poster put a website in the USA, they have pretty good prices, and I am also looking for a seat, here is the link:

I was wondering what the postage might be - perhaps not too horrendous?

Postal costs to the the USA and Australia can be very high ,but if the part required is cheap enough the overall combined cost might be within budget. Used Fuoco seats do not come up for sale that often ,mine i bought new and only had it on the bike 1 day. I,ll weigh and measure it and see what it comes out at for PaulyStar if he/she is interested.

Many dealers can negotiate better rates as there sending parts out all the time ,i can buy parts from Germany with a flat delivery cost of 10 euros for any amount i buy . But for us mortals it's a different story.

Just had alook online at UK Parcel2go with UPS and to send to USA 90cm x 40cm x20cm and anything between 3 and 5 kgs ( did'ent bother getting the seat out of storage to weigh it) is 65 with 50 insurance this was the cheapest quote . I dident bother looking further. I want 90 for my seat.
