I am measuring a BARE seat pan,1967-1970 650, and 1967-72 500, measured from the bottom (upside-down):

Length is 28 inches

Width is 10 1/2 inches.

I am not clear what part of the cover you want measured. Is it just the area where the rider sits, or the entire cover?

My 1968 T120 has a "light" panel on the top of the seat which is 25.5" long and 9" wide. That is the widest points and measured inside the bead.

The width varies a little over the length of the seat, between 8.5" and 9".

The sloped back panel is 4.5" and the sides vary between 4.5" and 4.75". This is quite an old seat, so I would guess that new it would have been closer to 5" all round.

Few photos, if they help.

Yes, but is the color of the TOP correct for your year and model?

Some were BLACK.
