    Amazonas/TRE seat securing tabs

    I've picked up a 2015 Amazonas with a loose seat because the 2 securing tabs on the tank are missing. Part details above. Apart from being £13 quid each plus VAT and postage !!! they are out of stock. Does anyone have them and want to sell I'm guessing the 1130 TRE are the same?

    Are you talking about part number 14 below?

    It's just a piece of flat steel with a countersunk hole in it. I could make a couple in 10 minutes.
    I'll do them for you for 12 quid!


    Seriously though, I could help you out in one of 2 ways:
    1. Make a pair for you, using the ones on my Tre-K as a pattern. You pay postage from Australia to wherever you are.
    2. Do a dimensioned drawing and email it to you so you can make them yourself (or get someone local to you to do it).

    PM me if you want me to do either.

    Cheers,
    Cam

    Here's the doohickey in question. It doesn't have a countersunk bolt as sown in the parts diagram, just a Phillips pan head and washer. I did a drawing so I could make a couple for Mr Spazbecker.
    (Note: If anyone prints the drawing jpg, it's unlikely to come out to the scale indicated.)

    Hi Lee,

    I must say I’m curious as to how your original seat tabs would have gone missing. Seems an odd thing for someone to remove.
    I don't reckon the ones on my Tre-K's tank have been off before. A previous owner painted the tank black (did a lousy job too) and the seat tabs evidently got painted along with the rest of the tank.

    Cheers,
    Cam

    Well I never knew these were a thing !.
    Iv not got any on my Trek and to be honest I've never felt the need either .
    But now that know I'll probably crash the bike constantly thinking about them now haha...

    Yeah I know they do seem insignificant but it was picked up as an advisory on the last MOT as 'seat loose'. Sprocket in Tasmania as kindly sorted me some out.
