Thruxton seat

Is there by chance anyone out there who knows where to get those seats (like used on the thruxton cup for example)?

You've been around for a while, so I suspect my answer is too simple. However, here goes...

In theory, you get them from PlasticBike in Italy:

I've sent them inquiries, however, and the cost of shipping their stuff to me in the USA is prohibitively expensive. If I lived in Germany, I think I'd jump on my bike and shoot over there.

By the way, I don't think I've seen those Shark pipes routed inside the shocks before. Looks cool.

Ogle my bike here.

You can order the parts from either


Both of these sellers are in Italy. I had looked into these Plasticbike parts a while back, but hesitated since the shipping was outrageous (I can't really blame them, that's just how it is shipping overseas unless shipping by boat). The current shipping charge from Redracingparts is 161 Euros to ship to the USA. Carpimoto was in the same ballpark, if I remember. You should be able to get a good price shipping to Germany. The costs of the actual fiberglass parts are very reasonable.

Thanks a lot Mancha and JG. I already thought this stuff will be produced in Italy,
but for some reason I did not found a dealer till today.
Since Italy is not really far away, I guess shipping will be no problem.

I will definately get one and I will try some special leather upholstery instead of the rubber pads they usually use with this seat.
If you are interested in progress I will post some pics of my work.

Thanks a lot again, thats why I like this Forum that much.

That is a cool looking bike. But why bother with the belly pan while the cooler and lines are fully exposed to damage?
