Tv175 seat cover

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm wondering if anyone can help me? I would like to buy a new seat cover for my TV and Im left a bit confused. The giuliari seat on this TV is different from my other and both scooters are original. This cover has a scallop cut at the bottom above the rear frame badge? Also the seat looks more black then blue? So my question is witch seat cover do I buy? The frames seem to look the same apart from one having a badge across the frame and the other is stamped on the hinge bracket. Sorry if this is super confusing. Thanks in advance.

Interesting seat. It has the screw in rubber buffer as per the TV/2 and early TV/3 'Coke bottle' (sometimes called 'wide-back') seats, but not the central bar associated with these models---but the wavy spring normally found on later S3 Giuliari seats. Cross over model? Or someone has fitted an earlier screw-in rubber buffer to a later seat? Hard to tell without better photos.

A Giuliari TV/2 and TV/3 'Coke bottle' seat should be 600 x 240mm. These measurements are taken from original Giuliari literature and cross-checked against 3 TV 'Coke bottle' seats I own. Later Series 3 Giuliari seats have different measurements. For example, Giuliari model 1425 (Special) measures 640 x 240mm and model 1876 (various) measures 640 x 230mm.

RLC has some good comparison photos here and if you really want to go down a rabbit hole, this is interesting.

Good luck!

PS: nice TV/3.

Hey thanks for the reply vegansydney! So I measured 590mm x 241mm? So now I'm very confused. Here's some better pictures. Thanks again.

@vegansydney 

I took a look at my seat, prepping for restoration. Came off an early TV3. I cannot tell it it's a Giuliari wide-back, coke bottle or a Aquila. Both share similar details from the photos from the German forum. Thoughts:
