Thanks for working it out, more @ home with spanners than keyboards,
what year model is it, & what style are you heading for?

'Kenny's resurrection is ongoing

Getting busy back there, mods to rack & new pannier mounts, as well as new[ish] panniers,

tight fit with new exhaust design,

Will be bolted on the rack for disassemble purposes

mount bracket runs parallel with exhaust

JTS panniers with onboard tail/brake/indicator combo LED lights
Cheers

It's a 1979 standard. I've got late model triumph thruxton shocks on it and planning on shinko 705 tires to make it my fire road bike. I call it the Yambler.

'Yambler' it is, '79 standard is a good thing, most of the problems had been sorted by the time that model came out,

I totally meant 78. I far fingered it in my phone. These new gadgets are so handy at perfecting miscommunication!

I like the simple style that bike, neat look,
back in the '70s after 'Stone' [Aussie movie], came out those bikini fairings were very popular,

This is my commuter (120 miles round trip). Plus I like riding dirt/gravel roads in my area. The Dunlop GT501 tires do ok on the dirt roads but a trials or knobbies would help a lot.
