Seat
« on: 04.12. 2012 18:30 »
Could anyone advise me what this seat might be off. It was fitted on my 1961 A7SS but is obviously not correct as it had a home made bracket fitted.

Think it may be a plunger A range seat ?

This is the old shaped base seat, which someone raised the question about on the forum before. I also think that it's the plunger and I think someone suggested B31. The original front bracket is very similar it's just that it has the extra two holes for mounting.

I had a seat just like this on a plunger B31, if you dont want it, it would go nicely on my racing sidecar!

Thanks for the information on the seat, very much appreciated. Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet Rocket Racer, might refit it or do a swap for the correct one.
