I've been on the fence since I have 2 NOS covers. But this is a good cause, and the points made by my brethren members have convinced me to join up. Put me down for one. BS350s Forever!!

   Hi DL
         Don't wish to interfere but was thinking. In light of what we know about original covers, new covers would benefit from being made slightly thicker on outerside, the clutch vent slot (later rubber plugged) near rear 5mm screw hole can be eliminated and  make from an alloy that can be readily welded !
         Just my thoughts,   Brian.

I would be in for (1) 350 right side cover. Sorry, don't log in here too often anymore as my bike is sitting in the corner gathering dust. Not enough $$, not enough time, not sure it's safe to ride a motorcycle around Phoenix....but I would still like a good cover!

I've just logged in specifically to answer this- I need one, I'm in!
Looking forward to using this forum more as my 71 GTR restore moves along.

Thanks!!

That'll buff right out!   ;D   Actually, since it doesn't seem to be cracked, it could look pretty good after some work.

Edit: I see I missed the fact that it is cracked. Still not  too bad of a piece, though.

From the sellers description......

"Description

Has a crack"

Crack is circled by the seller in the attached pic.

    I've seen far worse on Ebay, price is OK. Dents and crack would largely tap out with a bit of careful work.
