  9. Transalp 650 Standard Seat Wanted

    Transalp
    It seems standard seats are rarer than the proverbial hen's teeth. There just doesn't seem to be one for sale anywhere - unless you know different !

  15. 89AT seat question

    Africa Twin
    I was wondering if the seats are interchangeable between an 1989 xrv650 and the 89/90 US. transalp? Been looking for another seat and got a lead on one the owner said would fit the AT. My bikes are in another state so I can't compare them but he has a corbin that was on his 89 Alp. Thanks
