Someone on here was recently looking for a loop single seat? This one in Italy is worth looking at, looks like new, no worries of customs fees etc:

Thanks italianmotor, I bought the seat, shipping was EUR30 and as you say...no duty Big smile Fingers crossed now, that it will turn up as described. A big thank you again Thumbs Up Would like to find one of these now, although duty on $105 plus shipping may not be to bad?
 
cheers.

No problem, if it doesn't turn up tell me and I'll write the seller a stiff letter of complaint in Italian.

I do know the guys with the much older Guzzi singles use Agostinis in Mandello  for the reason they speak English, no customs fees and they seem to stock just about everything. I have bought a fair amount from teo Lammers for the same reason In fact the postage was actually less at the time from teo lammers than it was from the spares places in the UK !!!! It is well worth looking at these places
The Older i Get, The Better I Was

Hi. Solo seat is now fitted, needs a tweek just to get it right but it`s looking really well Smile No pictures yet because of the weather! I`m also manufacturing a rear rack for it, (save spending $105 plus shipping and duty) oh, in fact I`m making two, one will be painted gloss black, the other I`ll send to chroming which I think will look even better. It is something along the lines of the LAPD radio rack that Harpers sell in the U.S. As soon as I get a chance  I`ll take a picture....PS. I have the bike for sale in the "bikes for sale" section if anyone is interested...price is negotiable. Cheers, Steve. Thumbs Up
