When you discover that rare gem of an old Vespa pulled from the back of somebodies shed, the frame of the seat is usually still serviceable. The seats cover though, is normally well past its sell by date. A worn away seating surface and torn seams, even with the desire for a slightly used look, don’t look nice and should be replaced. Within a few minutes the scooter is given a whole new, tidier look.
The saddle covers produced by PASCOLI and PIAGGIO shine out from the crowd through their high quality of production and are absolutely identical to the original items in both shape and colour. The first choice during a restoration to original standards. Largeframe models original seat covers produced by PIAGGIO were usually either dark blue or black in colour, wideframe covers are usually dark green or black.
If you would like to spend a little less money and don’t care for the 1:1 original look, go for the ECO version of the seats. Sometimes they only differ in little details such as seam contour or welt widths. If not stated otherwise, all covers are made of high quality, weather-proof leatherette.
Although single saddles seem to be pretty similar at a first glance, you should check the following points prior to choosing a saddle for your scooter:
• Width handhold 180 or 240mm
• Cover closed or with openings or eyelets for handhold.
Original single saddle covers are usually equipped with eyelets. The closed version and single saddles with opening are usually found in the accessory section.
