I totally understand! I have one Umma gumma tire. Can't do anything with it, can't find another.

I hope I'll never sell it, cause I know I'll find one when I sold it...

Realizing just how hard it is to replace a perforated gem.

My perforated Ti Flite saddle (somewhat luckily) took the brunt of a highway mishap where my '89 GT Karakorum decided to become dislodged from my bike carrier and do somersaults down the highway. It still holds my rear in place just fine but finding one in better condition is impossible in this day.

Exactly. It must be an unwritten law of the retrobike universe.

Ouch man :evil:
Why I keep my bikes in the car with me; I'm too paranoid of such a mishap.
Sold my perforated saddle to a local; maybe he'll sell it back to me, hmmm.
