That looks as good as IF NOT better than the oem one. As far as the purists goes...IMHO if you are THAT anal about your bike being 100% original then you probably shouldn't even let it see the light of day. I still have the original one on my 83 and am planning to bond a piece of metal to the backside of it to hook under the rest of the pocket as I do not plan to put anything in it anyways...AND I plan to put a small piece of wire or a zip tie and attach it to the fairing somehow JUST in case it DOES want to go flying off. Just like the side covers, I always zip tie them to the frame so they can't easily go bye bye.
