This brings up an interesting question, at least to me! When I bought my C model (used), it had an R model seat on it. At least that's what I think it is. The seat comes to a blunted point in the rear and doesn't fit up tight to the tank. The bike also had the passenger pillion from the C because it attached to rear fender bolt, but not to the seat. Therefore, my question is the reverse of the original inquiry; can a stock retro seat fit a C model, or has my bike been altered to accept the retro? :?:
It's hard to say without seeing a picture of it. Could be an aftermarket seat. The fender struts on the R models are at a 90 degree angle(bolt goes in at a right angle to the strut).
The C strut and seat mounts are at a 45 degree angle(bolt goes in on an angle)
I finally got around to checking out my seat. It is indeed a stock R seat on my C. The seat brackets have been modified to fit the C fender struts. I'll change back to the C stock seat if I come across a cheap one. Otherwise, I'll just wait until I do my 240 swap and decide which seat to go with at that time.
