R75/7, 1977 seat and sidecovers. I bought this bike last year. It has a stock seat, apparently, with a short backrest. However, the "C" clips that hold the seat have been removed as the seat fits too snug behind the tank and has scratched up the rear of the tank (low down and not noticeable when the seat is down). Puting the seat on the pins and carefully puting the seat down leaves no room to get the clips back in their grooves. This can't be right. Another thing is, how are the side covers attached on this model year? I can't see any damage to the sidecovers or the frame. The rear of the covers slip into sort of clips but still slip downward. The front is held on by a tiny bungee running from one cover to the other and attached to small "L" shaped clipps on the covers.
