Just picked up a 1974 C&J framed XL350.
Everything on the bike seems to be from 1974.
(Engine, frame 73 through 1st 1/2 of 74, forks, rims etc.)
My question is on the seat. Looks like a 73-74 CR250 to me.
Shape and OEM cover & foam. With an alum pan made for the frame.
But am not 100% sure. Its about 22" long, 10" at the back tapers to about 2-3" in the front.
Any help much appreciated.

Also - if it is a 73-74 CR250 seat cover, who makes the best reproduction foam & covers?

Thanks!

Yes, but I think they were painted & holes spaced differently.
Found this photo on line. As I sold my 73 CR in 1976. lol
If you could measure yours, it would really help.
Thanks!
