    I have one and tried it. I like the '78 Special tail light better though. I have a special seat and the lucas style light looks good with it, hpwever.

    Good thing you fixed the seat Mr. B - that "before" seat would have soaked up a lotta water in the rains these days.

    Hey Pete, it must be the quality of the stock seat covers :umm:...I have 2 of them. Top one is from my '77 and the other was 'on' the '79SF. They do have good pans and stainless trim though.

    Those are from Mike's..."chrome-dirt, short track" #25-1088.
    I like the bend, but they aren't knurled where they mount on the triple trees. You should roughen that part up.
