    Orange is a '77 or later - gas filler is on the fender, not in rear next to plate as the 75/76 had. I had a '77.:)

    525 with a cloth top. Yuck. At least it came with the spare cat storage option.

    I believe the spare cat option was used to keep the tires clean and the engine warm! :D I see they sprung for the expensive calico one which goes nicely with the vinyl top. :p
