The difference in wheel clearance in my '84 and '85 is noticeable. Then again, the '84 had broken springs and the '85 has the foam inserts in the front corners of the lower spring.

i think I may take those foam inserts out and see how well the seat fits me. I am 5'10", 210lbs. My thighs aren't small, but I'm not thundering around. I also can't see my blinkers.

i think my seat is all the way down, the rear looks to be into the carpet. I need to spend a hour or so checking into it. I know the slide rails are dirty, but both the up/down and back/forward motions work well.
