    Raised Seat (Fits MK2 and MK3)

    I bought a mk2 seat from someone on here a few years back and it's been fitted to my mk3 for a good few years. It fits both bikes with no issues. It raises the front end to stop you sliding into the tank and allows a little more leg room for taller people, all up about a 2" lift. (I'm 6'3" and it helped a great deal.) It has a tiny tear at the rear, but otherwise it's excellent. Postage is likely to be a ball breaker again so 70 o.n.o. Collection or I'll travel to meet a little way around South Wales or the M6 corridor might be possible (and a suitable discount for collection obviously).

    Are you (or do you travel) anywhere near Swansea/Carmarthen by any chance?

    I'm near Pontypridd, but I certainly could travel that way. I need to get across to Llandeilo in about 3 week's time if you can wait that long? Or if more urgent I can meet somewhere on Saturday morning nearer Swansea perhaps?

    I'll take it then if I can, I will message you in the morning to sort out what's what, and if you are travelling to Llandeilo and willing to bring it with you that would be great.

    Just to say a big thanks and a thumbs up to 78 Bravo for delivering the seat to me  :028:
    A genuine pleasure to deal with.
