Thanks to LeRoy (Bob Sharp) for posting this information on the Wild Guzzi forum in response to the question: Correct way to mount T3 police solo seat?. This would also be applicable when mounting a solo seat to the Moto Guzzi V1000 I-Convert and Moto Guzzi V1000 G5.

Here is a little photo sequence that should help. First pic is an original brochure shot to give you the overall idea.

Next shows a side profile showing the radio brackets which are a necessary part of the seat mounting.

Third is an under-seat look showing the small brackets that mounts each side of the seat to the radio brackets and bike.
