I just picked up a "Teutonic QSL 1000 Mile Solo Saddle" to try out on my 1972 R75 /5, but I have a question about mounting this thing to my bike.
I have the seat, spring and base plate (the piece that slides into the frame top tube and has a horizontal rod sticking across the back making a "T") all assembled and slid into the frametop tube. The question is "What holds the seat at the rear?
A friend told me to use hose clamps to hold it on to the frame's cross tube but that doesn't seem real strong. From just looking at it, I would guess that there might be some sort of bracket or clamp that I am missing.
If there are any folks out there who could help with this puzzle, please let me know.
Oh yeah, the /5 looks really sharp with this seat, original black touring tank and the black Wixom bags with white pinstripes!
