Try Joe Ellis upholstery. He's just around the corner from Bentonville BMW. The hard part is getting your hands on quality materials at a small enough quantity to make it worthwhile.

The fact that here in the USA we buy bikes as toys. Most of the rest of the world buys bikes as daily transport is probably more telling.

We have one of those cheap guns that shoot the plastic pellets. It works well to reach out and "touch" a misbehaving dog. Most of the time I only have to pick it up, they have learnt their lessons.

Looks like it happened at a good time. Replace the bearing and seal and then enjoy your trip. I wouldn't call it a failure its just like a tire showing cords. You have to replace stuff that wears out.

Yes but the straw you've stuck in there will fall out won't it?

If you remove the main plugs and then stick a straw into the cylinder you'll be able to eyeball it and know when to expect TDC.
