But to my great horror... it had an 1/2" gash in the seat. I bought the seat from GM Cycles on Ebay for $289.00 -- I've seen the same seat listed elsewhere for $379.00! Anyway, I got in touch with Great Mills Cycles, and they reassured me, that they would reinburse me for the cost of the seat and shipping both ways. The only clitch is, they won't sell me another one because of the high risk for lost on their part (almost $140.00 CDN in shipping). I can understand their position on this... so I'm back to looking for a seat, but after seeing the Saddlemen up close, I think I'll just end up getting another one from some other source.
