Anybody can tell me where to find this type of plastic seat? It sits directly on the tube, and holds on with a bolt on the middle. Thanks.enter image description here

    Ask your local maker space to help make you on on their 3D printer. – RoboKaren Aug 6 '17 at 15:57

    @RoboKaren potentially yes, but printed plastic lacks the resiliency of molded stuff, so its generally a lot more brittle. Possibly using a lightweight metal plate as the fastener interface and main pan, and then printing on that (somehow) could provide a better item. 3dprinting.SE anyone ? – Criggie Aug 6 '17 at 18:21
  • You can print in ABS and seal it using an acetone vapor bath. Produces incredibly strong and smooth prints. I think the OP is looking for the "look" for a restoration rather than ridability anyway. – RoboKaren Aug 7 '17 at 0:19
  • If someone came round to our bike rehab group looking for such a seat we MIGHT be able to find one, in exchange for a small donation. (I don't see anything wrong with that one, though. Why do you want to replace it?) – Daniel R Hicks Aug 7 '17 at 1:15
