Will this work?

Can anyone tell me if this will work with my 80G? I don't have an existing seat pan at all so would this just bolt right onto the frame? Also if you can think of any better options feel free to voice them. Thanks!

No it won't. The special and standard seat pans don't interchange, especially with it being a fiberglass pan, so you can't bend the edge in like you could with the stock special seat to make it fit. There would be other problems as well, because there are other differences in the special frame over the standard frame. You can get any standard seat to work, but earlier than 80 seats would require either moving the TCI down out of the way of the seat or creating the indentation in the seat for the TCI that the stock G seat has.

So you need to find either an 80G seat or an 81H seat, both of which directly interchange and bolt right up.

Yeah, that one should work, it's made for a standard, and with the sculpted sides appears to be for the later ones at that even though it doesn't state so.
