Bummer. Looks like you can get one from Allstyles but I have found their email/phone service to be shockingly bad, so will probably buy from the US

I simply love the saddle of the GTV, especially the brown leather ones. I think that I will have to get one for my GTS.

Never got on with mine, even after modifying the position with spacers as many others have done. Replaced it with a GTS saddle!

When I get round to it I will post the leather seat on eBay - it's been on a scoot used daily for 2 and a half years and condition-wise is (IMO) a 7 out of 10... if anyone's interested? New these seats cost an absolute fortune, cheapest price I found is here: http://www.sip-scootershop.com/EN/Products/PI496265/Seat+Vespa+GTV+seat+for+two.aspx

Best,

Oh, neat! I haven't seen chrome side panels for the GT series before! Looks sharp with the horncover and fork cover. If it were possible to get a chrome headlight cone, that would tie it in perfectly.

Does that screen make a big difference to top speed? A particular issue with my 125, which gains 5mph when flat out if I simply duck down into the handlebars...

Hi,
side panels are from sip, vintage exhaust just ordered directly in Italy and still waiting for it. GT is nearly new and imported from Manchester, huge troubles to get it to Germany but now everything is perfect.

D'ohhh, the 4 hour drive to Peterborough from here is such a bugger. And I'm not sure funds will stretch, we are right in the middle of a house move and so I may not be able to bid

Assuming I don't I wish you every success!!

Yippee!
Whoop, whoop, she's MINE!

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=120600454667&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_500wt_992

Just the small matter of taking a day out to pick her up.

Anyone wanna buy a GTV125? 2007 Avio Grey, less than 7,000 miles and with full service history; latest maintenance done by myself but previously main dealer serviced.

New LV 4Road exhaust and Michelin City Grip tyres (although I might swap those Savas over...).

12 months tax & MOT.

One previous owner and in GRRREAT condition!

How does £1,950 sound?

Best,

Mark
