    Sebimoto and Opp racing.com matey.(or they used too)
    If you want one I have one, (with a few scrapes on it-nuthin that couldnt be sorted-with decals and or Tcut) My insurers paid for a new one after an off
    Its the 03 Mille/tuono one, look at my bike(avatar) thats it.(you need the 03 seat hump too) I have a spare base plate
    I just changed to the QB single seat unit.
    Tuono carbon seat units often come up on ebay-but you would have a fight on yer hands)
    Its at my bike garage at the mo, but if you are interested I could get some pix of it to you.
    It cost 400 new, I would only want about 150 plus p&p
    cheers Ck

    Thanks CK, I have spied a pukka Tuono one on ebay Germany but it doesn't have the cowl or bit behind riders seat (fill in panel) 399euro's!

    Is yours oem Aprilia or a replica piece?

    did the official racing pack have a full one piece unit or was it the same as the road unit but with a carbon pillion seat hump?

    I am waiting to hear back from QB about the RS3 Cube rep seat unit as well as the normal seat unit.

    I have the racing top cowl (no lights) and a set of grey air scoops, the Tuono side covers are easily obtainable from various euro sites.

    I am also looking for a genuine full length bellypan, I have seen the cheaper replica's but would rather wait for the real deal!!

    The idea is to fit a set of Gilles Variobars with / without the 60mm risers and be able to have the choice to use it as the Edwards or tuono racing depending how my mood takes me! I considered buying a Tuono racing but the Eddie came up at better price and it is cheaper to mod an edwards rep to a wannabe TR (well it was until i priced up genuine carbon bodywork!)

    Hi, my tail unit was supplied by PAB when he had RSVR.net, its good quality.
    thicker than QB carbons bits which are thin carbon with a layer of Kevlar on th einside.
    Most of my bodywork is from PAB, tho after a crash the rear seat and front fairing are from QB.
    for the bellypan you will have to buy european me thinks, I think ducati-khamna.de do one(or they did)
    I'm sure you can still get them.
    yeah its not cheap is it?, my tank was nearly 1k and the wheels 1k each!, still the bike lost 25kgs
    ck
    PS-I fit Gilles bars, not variobars, but theres quite a lot of adjustability just in them, mebbe worth a look as theyre cheaper?

    Alright Crasher.
    I am the UK importer for Sebimoto, I could do you a single seat unit in carbon for 305 + 6 postage. This would be the same as the one I have fitted to my bike so I will take some pictures on saturday and post them up.
    My web address is www.x-p-s.co.uk this is just our holding page and the full site will be done in about a week.
    Cheers, Tash

    Alright CK, the air ducts that we do are a one piece unit I could do you a pair of these for 175 delivered. This would be a cheaper option than getting the inner ones made.
    Cheers Mark

    Tash,

    Do you do those seat units in GRP/Fibreglass?

    I'm also after a Tuono race fairing.

    I could lose 25Kg just by eating less for a couple of months! (I'm not kidding either)
