750 Seat and Side Panel
« on: January 25, 2020, 11:21:25 AM »
Hi, can anyone help me out.
Nearly finished the light restoration / clean up of my bike. (leaving the paint as it is for now)
I'm after a good(ish) original seat or well used repro -I want to avoid it looking brand new if possible.
Also original left side panel - 1975 K5 (apricot red i think)
Long shot i know...but...
Many thanks
Phil

Finding the correct colour K5 panel in this country when they were not imported is asking a bit

Looks like a nice tidy survivor.... you could always buy a new panel and paint it....rs paints will have the correct colour.... But as lots of US bikes do get imported here you may drop on one...try twowheelspares on ebay...

Hi James, did you get chance to have a look for a seat?
Many thanks,
Phil.

Hi Phil. Just got back from France yesterday. Had a look in the workshop this evening and to be honest the only decent seat I have left is a NOS Honda K3-K6 seat that I’ve been holding back for a project. If I come across something more suitable in the next few days I’ll let you know.

OK.  Thank you.
