I was happy to find this. Mine has been sagging for a while so I was using the tennis ball trick to limit the travel.
Ordered one yesterday. New life for one of my favorite seats!

What about finding the seat? Interwebs aren't yielding much.

thanks

$192.00 - "Reserve not met"
It will be interesting to see how high these go....

I sold my last /5 BMW with the same dual seat set up. Should have kept the darn seats.

Expensive

They are getting crazy expensive. I advertised for one a couple of years ago, and received a email from someone that had one but wasnt planning on selling. He wanted me to make an offer. I did some research and found that most were selling in the $350 range. I offered him $300 and never heard back from him. I think maybe he was insulted? Anyway I found another one a few months later for $100. A much better price. And thats what they sold for new in the '70s when I bought my first one.

I paid $100.00 for an EBay one a few years ago with crap upholstery. Paid a $100.00 to get it recovered.
I've tried numerous types of seats and just can't find one as comfortable (to me anyway) as these.
I have two of them on bikes and a spare. Guess I'll hang onto the spare for retirement.(?) lol

Great Score!

Just picked up a QSL seat, passenger seat and rear rack with perfect upholstery for $75. I'm a happy camper!

Width @ approx. 17" at the widest point....length @ 14.5".

I have three of them and they are all the same. They also made a rear passenger seat which is a little shorter as the front "knob" is shortened by about 2" - 3" (?). I've seen a few of the "rear" seats mounted as a drivers seat.

Nice ride! I don't think I've ever seen Henry's floorboards for passengers. I'm assuming those are Henry's. Are they?
