Anyway I found another one a few months later for $100. A much better price. And thats what they sold for new in the '70s when I bought my first one.
I paid $100.00 for an EBay one a few years ago with crap upholstery. Paid a $100.00 to get it recovered.
I've tried numerous types of seats and just can't find one as comfortable (to me anyway) as these.
I have two of them on bikes and a spare. Guess I'll hang onto the spare for retirement.(?) lol
