  1. Ciao Guest, Happy 2019! Note all of our products and custom bike builds are now on our sister site; GTMotoCycles.com. You may need a new username and password to get into the new GTM Store system - pending and past order info is available there. NOTE: We are not Amazon, we are a tiny one man operation. Thanks for your patience on orders. GuzziTech is now back to our origins; Enjoy the Guzzi Community Forum and Resources here. There is zero tolerance on personal attacks and off-site links to other Forums or competing products. Note there's decades of Guzzi hands-on experienced help on this site, all whom give endless amounts of their time for free - be courteous. For those who are new here, the owner of this site (Todd - GT-Rx®) has been immersed in Guzzis since 1999. He's raced and wrenched for two-thirds of his life, both Pro dirt-track and road-race, and contributed to Cycle World Magazine from 2000 until 2007. He began Guzzi dyno performance modifying and fuel tuning in 2001, and has been wrenching them full time since 2007. His GT MotoCycles workshop has been open for ~4 years in Orange, CA. We do not have a phone number for this site or GTM, we're online only... do not ask us to call you. Click on the Service tab above for more info or to book an appointment -- it is not a retail shop to visit.

In a few short years GuzziTech.com will hit the 20 year mark of providing advice and tech tips for free.

    IMG_5877.JPG Anyone know the story behind this seat? Looks stock but maybe custom shaping of the foam underneath?

    Yes, stock seat that the foam has been trimmed down to lower the seat height.

    Thanks.

    I'm bought and am picking up a nice customized racer as soon as the snow melts (36" of snow today!). I'm a tad short and tippy toe it.

    If I shape the foam and lessen it, won't the original fabric be incredibly stretched to fill the void of missing foam? Wouldn't cover start to wear or tear earlier? If not... that's great!

    I guess I'm wondering if just ordering vinyl and recovering it might be the better way to go?
