Is anyone a US dealer for them? Their /7 solo seat looks awesome.

R80g/s

I just recently picked up a 1981 R80g/s with the standard bench seat. I'd like to convert to a solo seat with rear rack, but I have yet to see one of these in person.

How does the seat come off for access to the tool area? Does the seat come off by itself or does the luggage rack come off as well?

Thanks in advance !

R80G/S solo seat with rack attaches with front tab into frame and two tabs in rear. with two plastic nuts holding down seat. there's also a locking tab located rear center.

rack is bolted to seat ... entire seat/rack comes off in one assembly to access tools

My seat comes off separate from the rack. Really depends on the design.
