    Oh nearly forgot - has anyone seen a Le mans MK2, 3, 4,or 5 fairing like this?
    Left-over from my Mk5 days, but I have never seen another one with faired in rounded indicator lenses like it.

    Here's a pic of my SE edition which I had up to 2014 & couldn't understand why the guy rode away on it so quickly- I didn't know much back then!

    I did a lot of work to this bike since I bought it about two month ago. I bought and installed a new air box to replace the pod filters with, I did a full service replacing all fluids and filters, I replaced the original brake lines with new braided lines, new throttle and clutch cables, I replaced the battery, new rubber manifolds, new wind screen, cosmetic work, and, and, and...... The last thing I was waiting on yesterday was the re-covered seat. I liked the workmanship of the tech who worked on this seat, but the seats red color doesn't match up with the bikes red.... I waited six week for this seat, and I supplied the seat company one of this bikes side panels in order to get a correct color match...... I now need to take this seat back to the shop and hope that they can do a better job matching the color.

    I have a black Sargent seat, which came with this bike, and it is really comfortable, but I think that it looks too beefy mounted on this bike. I almost wonder if I should have the wrong-colored red seat covering done in black, which would take care of the Sargent seat's big beefy look.

    Both seats look OK to me. The red one is close and I don't think they ever were an exact match.
