I might have some spare seat pads and ask Nige at Sandbar if he can russel up a carbon one.

Hi
My strada has a QB carbon single seat as you can see in the pic. Its good quality and fit isnt too bad although the front side panels are not quite level with the tank, buts its not that noticable. They dont supply seat pads however but I bought a seat pad and bum pad from Nattyboy for a very reasonable price. Worth asking if he has any more left.

www.qbcarbon.com

Cheers
Andy

Been told that painting carbon is an expensive job compared to fibreglass,no doubt Sandbar produce good gear but at 347 probably be a shame to paint it!.

Mine was fitted when I bought the bike, the number panel surround and 1 are not painted and show through as carbon so you can still tell you have a flash piece of carbon on your bike.
I thought it was a bit 'R1 ish' but its quite subtle

I don't suppose you want a genuine 888 single seat frame?

QB do a fibreglass seat which is what I used...although its cack quality and youll need to spend hours prepping/cutting/sanding !! (fortunatley my painter is an absolute perfectionist and it came out no different to an OE unit !!!) you can mod it to fit the strada subframe..but youd be daft not to take that SP0 one of Rob coz it will save you loadsa hassle !!!

A few pics for reference if it helps..
