Rally seats are specific. the tank is taller and the seat has to accomodate this.

Nos 70's Piaggio Seats - Did I imagin this?
Got it. But was there a recent ad that was selling 70's seats or is this some crazy dream I had? I understand the rally has the larger tank.

I dreamt I was on a road trip through Ensenada with a giant talking banana..


... that was a dream............ right?




I'll keep my eye open for 70's seats for sale, and post it up if I find it!

Everyone else: you should too!

Thanks for the warning! What happened to yours to make you think it is a POS?

I would be very wary of any reproduction seats. I made the mistake of buying the Mauro Pascoli seat cover for the GS 160; now that is a POS.
The best option is to look for an original seat on ebay, and then either keep the original cover or have a professional recover it.

The Made In Italy brand Rally seats and seat covers are great. I've received a few of the seats and each has been very high quality.

I'm currently using a MII Rally seat cover on my bike.

The Good and the ugly imports-
Where did you get a good one and why do you like them? What's wrong with the bad ones and who sold those? I think the ebay & scoot sites for original make sense.
