I'm doing over a 72 Panther (303 Sachs rotary, brupp brupp brupp!) and the seat is toast. The price of a repro these days is rather stiff, hoping to find another one with a good solid used seat for a reasonable price. Nice thing is all 72 Panthers take the same seat. Ditto for the rear passenger grips and bumper. This sled is sadly being retired to the show circuit. The darn thing is too much fun to ride (Yeah it's slow, 41mph tops on radar, but it's a barrel of laughs) but I gotta get serious about keeping it alive for many years to come. Any good seat or donor sled sightings will be rewarded, thanks.
