"is quite used, and some of the Kevlar strands are scuffed, frayed and worn, so I can't make any guarantees about usability"

I love the way it says in the owners manual;
Q5. Can I keep on riding if any of the Kevlar filaments have been broken?

A. The disk drive can be used for a short time period even with a snapped or severed filament in the geodesic webbing. However, please ride slowly and with caution (here comes the best bit) then replace the damaged sheet as soon as possible.

Even back in the nineties I think these retailed for about £ 500.

Yeah.... i'll just pop down the shop and get another sheet! :?
