Bugeye v. Sprite MkII/Midget MkI Seats

John Moore

Luke Skywalker
My bugeye came with mid '70's midget seats. I would REALLY like to get an early set of seats. Other than the piping and stitching on the outside are the BE and early Spridget seats the same, in regards to the frame and installation? If so that would open up more opportunity. Or was the same seat used in any other LBC?

Does anyone have a set they would like to sell? Since I'm going for the rat rod look, I wouldn't mind a set of tatty but usable seats. I'll also send a note out on the parts trader.
I thought they were all the same (up through '64) except for the seat pan and upholstery.
So which ones are the same?


Country flag
dunno, just saw Moss's PN's

Maybe someone can measure each.
