But in 1975 the seat came with cross pleats and no white piping. The early seat had longitudinal pleats.
Gotcha, thanks jtwind - my upholstery has the piping and logitudinal pleats, so I have the pre '75 seat. Since my production date was well into '75, I am going get the "regular" /6 seat from Siebenrock eventually.

Yes you have the wrong seat. Most likely a /7 seat.
From the piping and pleats, I'm pretty sure it's a /6 seat, just an earlier design. I do have the knee pads (rubber sidepanels) on the bike, tho.

Although it would seem unlikely that the actual seat size would change on a /6 between '74 and '75, below is a side shot of the gap between my tank seat.

Is this type of gap between the tank and seat normal?
