The straight sides on that seat say Standard to me. My '79 Special is running a '80 Special seat pan, and it dips down in the middle of the seat quite a bit. If the ignition box is in the way, that's another clue it's a Standard pan. My understanding is the Standard seat has the ignition module under the cowl instead of under the seat like the Specials.

My 2 cents anyway.
