Ross,

Nicely done. It turned out really nice. I have a strap if you need one. It came with an h2 seat that I recovered. Think it is the same or close to the cbx strap. I will check tomorrow and see if it's the same or close and let you know. If you need it, it's yours.

The strap I have is just about 1/8" more narrow then the cbx. If you can use it, you can have it.

And the last task was to fit the strap which Mike (AKA CopperCollar) was so generous in sending me.

Ross:
A pretty sweet rider you have there! If you decide to sell, someone will get a nice, well-sorted '79.
