Sometimes it takes a whole tank of gas before you can think straight.

No backrest on mine, Garrett.
Your bike's Saaweet !!!
What's the kicker from ?

The seat for sale would be in my garage if I didn't already have one, good find!

The SF seat will work on a '80G, same pan but the SF is 1" narrower at the front. Makes it a little easier to get a foot down with my 30" inseam





Fairing look familiar ?
This is the seat we rode on this past XS East and didn't like it.
Well my side was good the wife's was brutal. I removed too much foam where the SF pan kicks up in the rear. It looked good
I then used a Venturer seat cover and foam, on the Sf pan, with a bit of trimming and made a seat that we can live with.

Nice standard...I want one of them....did I sell you that fairing? Remember, I had serious head trauma and forgot a lot or at least thatís my excuse.
The bike pic I posted was my best 79 special.....I sold it about ten years ago when I needed some cash.. one of my 78 standards is in the background. I listed that on eBay at the same time as the special and some dude in Connecticut got it for way less than I sold the special for. Wish I could find him..
I believe the kicker was from a xs850 or 750. If you get one just make sure it doesnít hit your exhaust.....I kinda think I remember moving it out a little before I bolted it down.

Thanxs for the tip on the kicker, I may used one on my SF.

Yep you sold ( I stole ) the Pacifico to me in August '09 for $30 with brackets

It was a nice visit ( 220 mi.) one way.

I had to go through my archived emails 'cause it was buggin' me when, and how long it hung from the rafters in the garage.

Finally got it mounted in '15 and yes you were right polished up like new.

Oh thatís great, so youíre my buddy from Pittsburgh that brought me the terrible towel! Lol. I still have it hanging on the wall in the bike shop. Iím ashamed I didnít give that fairing to you! Weíll be coming out to see the Steelers/chargers game in a few weeks. Maybe youíll have to meet us at Clemís for some ribs.
