PRICE DROP - $550 SHIPPED (USA)!
Here's the back ground on the seat. I purchased this and it was damaged in shipping. Because it wasn't too bad and these seats are extremely hard to come by, I thought it would be worth the investment to repair. Now that it's complete, I'm not sure if I'd consider it an investment, but it does look pretty.
The carbon fiber top skin was repaired and stripped down to remove any of the yellowing. Finally it was re-clear coated to look brand new. If your familiar with Ducati Performance Carbon Fiber pieces, then you'll know that they are not clear coated and tend have a gel coat that yellows from the sun. This piece will no longer have that problem.
The repair is pretty good, but not invisible. I want to be upfront about this. Also, the person I bought it from obviously tried to modify the underside to make it fit his bike. If you're a handy person, these mods shouldn't be a show stopper, but as is the seat needs some work before mounting. I've pointed out the areas of concern in the photos. Looks like the pin and its position was changed. Also the center tab that attaches to the seat is cracked. The threads where the center bolt screws into on the seat is also missing.
Again, I wanted to be upfront with this, because the guy I bought it from wasn't. I was planning to fix this myself, but I actually found another seat while this was out for repair so I don't need this one anymore. This is not really a big deal and I figured someone else could benefit from the savings if they did it themselves. Please let me know if you have any questions. Since I have a good amount of money into this seat, I'm looking to get $600. They usually go between $700-$800.
