I'd like to replace the ugly stock seat with something black with a hump. There are TONS of so-called "universal" seats out there, but they don't seem to have the right hardware to fit a Super Soco. The TC has that metal loop at the back for the latch, which no other seat seems to have.

Anybody know how to mount one on a Super soco?Β 

Example: Something like this. (I haven't compared measurements to the stock TC seat yet. )

I mean, it's Amazon, so you could return it if it doesn't work. Aesthetically speaking I don't find the stock seat offensive, but would be nice to know that there are compatible after-market seats.

I bought mine as a SΓΊper Soco TC genuine aftermarket seat, but was fitted with 2cm chrome metal studs: they had to go!

Once the studs are gone, it looks good! I'd go for that if it were easily available in Canada. Unfortunately, getting parts for a Super Soco is difficult here because I have to describe part I need to the dealership and hope they get it right when they order it, because it can't be returned.

I'll look for a website that lists it, and maybe THEN they'll understand. πŸ™‚

Thanks, Phil!

Better without the studs.

Soon to be recovered with alcántara fake suede. (Vegan)😉🤩😃

If all else fails there is an official mesh seat cover:

OK if you live in Germany.

I find their 18€ minimum postage to Spain is just crazy. I refuse to pay more than 8€ for small items within the EU. No more.

They quote the same minimum postage to the UK but I only paid 8 or 9 euros when I ordered my small windshield, frame plugs & clock screen protector. Larger items may have higher carriage costs though.

I had my original seat upholstered with this result.

Your TC looks so clean and shiny! Mine's all scratched up and filthy.

But that seat looks great. Hope the upholsterer didn't charge too much.

The job on my seat set me back 165 euros.

to make your TC look shiny start with removing the pin striping and other decals, it comes off easy when heated with a hairdryer.
