Anyone have a source for a sixty8 brown Thruxton seat?

I've been looking for a while and when I came out of work today there was a custom Thruxton parked next to me with THE EXACT SEAT I want. Seeing it in person and 3 feet from my bike I want it even more now. Dude had quick release bolts and I'd be lying if I said I didn't have a split second of thinking of jacking it. Left a note instead to see if he'd be interested in selling, but he had matching grips and end mirrors so I doubt he'll get back to me. SOMEONE out there has to have one of these things for sale!

Theres a few places over here that you may pick one up, postage might be a killer though.

I have one, and might be convinced to part with it. =) I have a custom seat and my stocker, so I've certainly one more than I need. It took me forever to find one, but I put it on my bike, LOVED the color and the look on my scrammy, but found it sat too low for me to be particularly comfortable, making it a bit impractical for me to use regularly.

Make me an offer, and maybe I'll part with it!

What condition is it in? Have any pics? I'd definitely be interested in making you an offer.

It's in perfect condition, no really mentionable wear aside from being 'broken in'. I think, collectively, it's got about 800-1000 miles on it between the previous owner and I. I'll snap some pics here in a bit!

I have one that I can part with, like new. PM me
Here's a pic of the seat. It is presently on a new gold Bonny at my local dealers. After I get it back, I'll post it forsale in the classified section.
