I pulled the vinyl off of my original 1968 V700 seat pan, pulled the foam off, cleaned up the pan with the hopes of rebuilding it. The pan is in very rough shape and I'm wondering about replacing the seat altogether with an aftermarket. I mostly ride solo with a nice italian leather solo seat, but want to be able to take a passenger now and again. Not looking to spend a fortune here. Does anyone have any experience with the Texavina seats? For $179 I'm thinking I'll take a gamble. Also does anyone know compatability between the V700 and the eldo and ambassador seats?

Aren’t they all the same?
My dual seat pan (850GT = Eldorado) was rusty but I welded it up, fitted a new moulded foam and refitted the original cover. Nobody sees the pan, or my terrible welding!

This is a post from last year where I enquired about a spare seat I have.
The difference between the V700 seat and those of the later Loops is explained here by Charlie (Amboman)
V700 seats had a bracket that bolted to the frame in the front, later Loops just a thick, hard rubber pad glued to the seat.

Sorry, I don't know anything about "Texavina" seats, but welcome to the forum.
