If its the clamp on the bike, go to a good LBS and have em measure the diameter of the seat tube. It may be outta spec and you may need a larger dia seatpost. Failing that, a coke can shim works wonders.

Oh, and get a real bolt in there.

If its the top of the seatpost/saddle rails junction its about the same for diagnosis, just different parts you may need.

Yeah.. Seat Quick release. What's "Failing that, a coke can shim works wonders."

Slightly undersized seatpost and/or slightly oversized seat tube + shim cut out of a AL can = happy.

Overly simple, and I almost hate to ask it, but have you tried turning it in a half turn when it is in the released state and then swinging it over to lock it in?

First step: get a bolt-on collar/holder jobbie.

That's a damn fine stable you got there! I remember driving up to the Marinoni shop in Montreal, I think, with my buddy to pick up his frame. Same paint scheme as yours, but blue on the head tube. I had that same Chorus group on my Davidson, still have most of lying around too.
