Looking for a usable chrome trim strip for a 1973 TX650.
Hoping that someone saved one from their otherwise rotted out and discarded seat.
FYI -- this is ONE-YEAR only trim strip on a one-year only seat. Only a 1973 TX650 chrome strip will work for me.
 
mebby.... you got any dimensions so I can ID it fo-sho?

Thanks Gary. While taking measurements and comparing trims, I found what I am 95% sure is the sought after trim amongst my own parts, so no longer needed as of now.
Hear are my findings. May help someone else, or me, in the future.

The key tell is the over all length. The 1973 trim is the longest of them all, at 27-1/2". All other trims are 26" or less.
The 1973 trim is somewhat angular, with straightish segments between the bends. All other years are curvier.
A loose trim will spring open, but if you hold the nose of a 1973 trim closed at 9-1/2" you will get the other widths further back as shown in my diagram.

The 1973 trim has a very flat bottom.
