You can use a /6 seat or a LWB /5. A /7 seat will fit if you use the /7 tank or don't mind the gap you would get with the /7 seat and a /6 tank.

I'm not looking for a cafe seat, more along the lines of the original solo and couldn't really find anything like that at his website...

It might be one of those deals where you have to ask him directly. This seat came from Chris:

It probably won't. The originals say BOSCH on them. They're Halogen (H4) with a separate little bulb for the parking light.

That's a good lookin solo seat. Saw one on eBay that was nice. Pricey imo, but pretty. It may have been /5 though.

That's a /5 it's on but I think it's also good for /6s and maybe /7s, too. The seat comes with the front post so it sits on both hinges making it very secure. Wasn't cheap but I thought the cost was very fair.

You're actually in the right pace to advertise it if you're wanting to sell it. I assume you mean a seat ya? How much you thinking, I know there is someone else looking for a solo seat on here too, so you might go ahead a post a pic and a price of what ya got!
