After a long wait, finally got the seat back from the upholsterer, he followed by instructions and did a great job, but sadly I wasn't as clear as I should have been, so the seat front doesn't fit against the tank as it should, and its too squared off at the front. So it'll have to be redone at some point.. on a better note the other seat he did for me for another project was perfect. I'll wait until I can take the bike to the upholsterer so it will be clear what I want.. One step forward, two steps back..

Finally got time and space to work on the Guzzi again. Got the seat reupholstered couple of months ago, but only now have I fitted to the bike. The seat unit mounts will need a bit more work, hence its held up at the back by a block of wood in the pic. Next few days will hopefully complete the wiring, using a Moto Gadget M-unit. Then will try to start the engine for the first time in a decade..

Ah yes, been working on the old Guzzi this week, removed the wiring and M-Unit and replacing it with a D-Box, finally modifying the fairing brackets to fit, not an easy mod, and a few other changes. Got a new project arriving tomorrow, so need to work quickly for a change.

Just curious why you’re replacing the M-Unit with a D box
There's nothing wrong with the M-Unit, but the D-Box is a simpler control box, suites the bike, as I would never use all the functions of the M-Unit on the bike, I shall use the M-Unit on another future project. Also the D-Box seems waterproof, certainly a lot more so than the M-Unit, which is helpful with its location on the Guzzi. I was impressed with the D-Box when I recently fitted one, and at half the price of the M-Unit it is good value. Though I shall be retaining the Moto Gadget M-Switches on the bars.
