Hello all,

I have a '72 CL175 for which I have purchased a NOS '69 CB175 tank. Obviously my seat was designed for the '72 Scrambler tank and thus does not fit with the new tank because the seat is too long and the pan hits when the seat is folded over to try and latch.

Is there a specific year/model seat that is side hinged, yet will fit with the 68/69/70 CB175 tank? I know some of the CBs of that era were rear hinged...

Thanks in advance!

The only possibility I can think of is CB200 - side hinged, and the frame (indeed the whole bike) is very similar to later 175's.

I thought about that too, but I'm thinking the geometry based on the length of the CB200 tank may not be in my favor...
