    Could be a work-in-progress. This is what I rode on while Bill Mayer was rebuilding my seat...

    I had one like that on my '79 XL250. I was dead set against spending money on it (it was a gift after sitting in a field for well over a decade), so I wrapped a bunch of old t-shirts in a piece of vinyl, and bungeed it on the bike. It worked fine for 10 years.
