Most old Vespas have been exposed to the elements for years. From blizzards to desert storms, just about everything sweeps over a scooter. In the process, the seat benches in particular take a beating. They fade, become porous and eventually tear. The foam soaks up moisture and gives you a wet backside every time you ride. Then, at the latest, it's time for a new seat.
The seat release works either via a lock or a lever/push button at the end of the seat. For 2-man operation, a strap/handle for the pillion passenger is required by law. This is pre-mounted on all benches that are approved for 2-man operation. All benches of the same model series are interchangeable. This means that you can fit a seat that was originally fitted to the Vespa '98/MY to all other PX/PE models. This also applies to all Smallframe models. Take off the mono seat and replace it with a double seat, there is enough room for the pillion passenger. But it's up to you whether you want to fit a GS seat on a PX. In order to make it easier for you to choose the right part for your restoration, we have given each part a model designation that indicates the vehicle on which the part was originally fitted. Seats from PASCOLI as well as PIAGGIO and SIP Style stand out due to their high-quality workmanship and correspond almost completely to the original in shape and colour. Perfectly crafted spring core with thick foam mat for high seating comfort, clean seams and high-quality seat cover. First choice for a restoration in original condition.
Seats for Vespa 150/160GS, 180SS and T5 models are no longer available from PIAGGIO. Here we supply original equipment quality Made in Italy! PIAGGIO preferred to use dark blue and black for all models. For all those who prefer something cheaper and for whom an original seat is too expensive, we offer all common seats from the accessories as replicas. These differ from the original only in small details such as the seam pattern and the thickness of the foam mat for the spring core. Our favourite for anyone looking for an inexpensive bench seat. All benches are made of high-quality, weatherproof imitation leather. If a different bench spigot is needed for assembly, it is included.
