Hi,

I was hoping someone could help!

I donít know much about Vespas or any bikes to be honest, but I am looking to buy my partner a new seat for his project Vespa.

What I know is that it is an ET 50, 2002 (52) reg.

If anyone could recommend a place to buy one from, and what specific one I need, that would be super helpful!

Bonus points for any links!

And extra bonus points if it is a brown/Camel coloured one!

Thank you!

you can fit any seat that fits an LX50/LX150 as well...you just have to take your lock out of the old seat and put it in the new one...

You said a new seat - not sure if that means literally new, or new-to-you?

If you are interested in a used seat, you could search or post a "want to buy" in the For Sale section: http://modernvespa.com/forum/forum3

If you want new, it looks like you can buy an ET seat at ScooterWest:

Or just the seat cover, if that's all you need:

jixaw mentioned you can use an LX seat. I am not sure this is true, only because ScooterWest does not list ET in it's compatible bikes / "Scooter Fit", but you could give them a call if you wanted the tan seat:

i have an lx50 seat on my ET2 and confirm it fits perfectly with no mods needed...the one change is that the lock is now on the left side inside of the right, but this doesnt seem to affect anything

i think the lx50 seat is more comfortable than the stock et2 seat

It is all broken as he bought the whole thing as spares and repairs and has since done the whole thing up also he just wants a new one

I have an S50 seat on mine and it's nice. The seats are interchangeable between the LX/S and ET models.
