750 GT Seat Cover

Hi Guys. I would like to replace the seat cover on my 750 GT. The previous owner had it reupholstered and it's OK, but very slippery. The other reason I'd like to replace it is because the PO cut out the "DUCATI" letters in vinyl and glued the to the rear of the seat. It actually looks fantasic, but the letters peal off easily. Here's a pic of my seat.



Any recommendations on where to get a seat cover? I saw that BevelHeaven has one but it's very expensive. There is one on ebay (From Thailand) that looks very nice and is half the price. Anyone have any experience with 750 GT seat covers? Is suppose it's possible the Bevel Heaven gets theirs from the same source?

Here is the one from Ebay : A202 Ducati 750 GT 750G7 1972 1973 1974 Heat Pressed Seat Cover Zava | eBay

Here is the one from BH: https://store.bevelheaven.com/Body-D...-Cover-750-GT/

Thanks @Duccout . I'm curious as to how many manufacturers there are for this seat cover? Given the relatively low production numbers of the 750 GT, it seems unlikely that there are lots of companies making this thing.

I had a look at Road and Race. I'm not very keen on purchasing from them when their website asks people to

"Send an email to Road and Race including:

Make, Model and Year of your motorcycle.
A list of parts you require, including part numbers if possible.
Your credit card information:
Name on the card
Expiry Date
Card Number
Card Type (Visa, Mastercard etc)"


Who in their right minds would email anyone credit card information? That's Information Security 101. Surely they have a better way to order?

I have ordered a lot of stuff from Phil at Road and Race and have always been very pleased. I fax my details through to him though.

Email Phil with your list and he will email back the cost. Phone him with credit card details. Works for me - Phil is a good guy.

I actually bought a brand new seat for my 750, made by Phil - he made the base and the best seat restorer in the world, Tony O'Connor, made up the foam and covered it. What a fantastic seat! Beautiful and comfortable for hours of riding.

Does anyone have any pointers on how to replace the seat cover? I'd like to tackle it myself but don't know the best way to do it.

I rolled the dice and bought the seat cover from Pit Replicas in Thailand. ($100 shipped) Several of my Norton Club guys have purchased seats from them for their commandos and they are very well made. My 750 GT cover cam yesterday and it does look very nice. I will put up some pics assuming I can get it installed correctly.

Well, I'm impressed. The $100 seat cover from Thailand (Ebay) was a perfect fit and looks amazing.
