Early seat from eBay for Excelsior 69.99 shipped!

The one that came with my bike was rotted in half... The foam was shot the cover was shot..

So I bought an early 80s king queen seat to deal with for temp.

Till now!

Scavenged eBay for a cheap seat... And stumbled on what looks mint 79 seat and King queen cover like mine!

Gonna be awesome being able to flat foot the ground again, the later seat is too wide for me...

Check out this item I found on eBay: http://pages.ebay.com/motors/link/?n...456513&alt=web

Hey Spark,

That's not an OEM seat,it's a Travelcade brand aftermarket one. It has a fiberglass pan. I got one for mine back in 2000 from JC Whitney, it's OK, not as comfy as it looks, but hopefully it'll fit you and your bike well enough.

T.C.

Oh. Well that kinda sucks it isn't OE. But at least it won't rust!

Finally put the seat on a couple weeks ago.
Been riding as my DD again, my Subis headgaskets blew, so that engine is apart right now.


The seat riding position is AWESOME, but its slightly taller for me
