ON Sparco seat with RX8 bracket

Selling Sparco seat with RX8 bracket.

Bought it, tried it, not the right seat for me so take it off my hands

$280 for both, not splitting up.

What size is it? I'm 5'8"; 215 lbs.; 36" waist (TMI, I know). How is the height compared with the stocker? Is the seat angle adjustable?

Not sure if the deal is pending or not with boffam but if not I am VERY interested!

(providing the seat is an authentic Sparco)

It is authentic, not sure on the model name though. I am 34" waist (sometimes 36" depending on the brand/cut of pants) and I fit just fine in the seat. 36" might be hit-or-miss, I don't think anyone wider than 36" would be able to fit in there though.

The bracket is a fixed bracket, there's about 1.5" of adjustability front-to-back; you could always adjust the angle by adding washers to the rear mounts but probably not by much. Height is much lower, my guess is about 2".

Money talks, PM me for EMT address if interested.

Only 1.5" of travel? Can the holes be drilled out more? I'm vertically challenged, and like to sit up close like Dale Jr.

Yes there is lots of room to expand the holes.

There is a mounting point on the bracket for the OEM seat belt. See the left side on the picture in 1st post.

Bring? No.

Ship? Yes.

If I still have it whenever I go to Shannonville or Mosport I can bring it that far, but I have a feeling it'll be sold before that.

Airbag light comes on, no CEL. You could always hookup a resistor/ground to the airbag wire if it bothers you.

Greyhound shipping quote was $90 when I bought it (but the greyhound guy screwed up and it was less lol...). I'll ship however you like if you can get a better rate.
