Yeah there is a picture on the cover of this month's Cycle World in which the featured Guzzi has a brown seat- that bike actually looks good in my opinion. A red seat and the corresponding plastic will turn.......PINK if left in the sun too long. That's not the reason I don't like the red seat but it is something else to think about. I bought an old beat up Toyota Tercel years ago that was red but was faded to pink. I actually detailed that old thing back to red to stop the "pink" comments from friends and my brother-in-law.
