Looking for a seat part.

Hi all,
Took delivery of a 12 year old LT last week and must say that I'm truly impressed with the ride and handling.
However of all the small odds and ends missing or wrong with it, the only annoying one is that the seat is missing the raising bar which flips down to change the seat height. At 6'3 it is something I would rather try and get hold of.
Any of you have one lying around to sell? It is for a year 2000 model which is different to the 2004 and later ones.
Cheers, Al

Re: Looking for a seat part.

An alternate fix is to place a couple of hockey pucks, one on either side, between seat pan and frame.

Re: Looking for a seat part.

Am sure that will work too!
Thanks, might have to go that route to see if I preffer the height if I don't find one.

Re: Looking for a seat part.

Hi Bob,
The seat part number is stamped on in white paint, have got most of the numbers bar the number/letter OE or 0E or OF or 0F.

2 3095 OE 469 4

However looking closely there does seem to have been a rod in the seat as I can just make out some light rusting.
Any help you might have would be appreciated.

Al

Re: Looking for a seat part.

If I remember correctly, one had to modify the frame, area under the seat to get the lower seat onto a 2000 which didn't have one as a option.

Sure, but we use them for skeet shooting, once we run out of clays.
