I'm replacing a missing seat strap on my 75 Commando 850 Roadster. I see where one end of the strap is fastened to the seat with a screw, but can't determine where the other end is attached to the bike.

The Mk3 Roadster wouldn't normally have a strap.

There's usually a single self-tapping screw hole on the RH side (straps aren't normally fixed with screws) for the seat check wire.

I use a screw with a nyloc nut, not fully tightened at the frame attachment so the check wire ring is free to rotate.
