My 1986 Interstate

This is my "new" bike...almost 30 years old.

Does anyone know where i can get a replacement seat?

Or a seat cover?

If you are thinking of a seat cover, think of a sheep skin. I have one on mine, and it is really comfortable in both the cool and the heat - but a real pain in the butt if it gets wet, but a simple sheet of plastic stops the water. It should not be that expensive, either, and will allow you to ride it while you are saving your $ for a replacement seat. HTH

There are numerous outfits on ebay that sell replacement covers for these, however, I would also take it to an upholstery shop and ditch the 30 yr old foam and have them fit new foam, then put new cover on.

Find a local one person upholstery shop that does custom car work and you can get what you want. What the cost will be, who knows and you will not know until you ask. I had my seat redone a couple of years ago and with new padding (I went with cold weather snowmobile vinyl) cost me $100. Completely waterproof and will not crack in cold weather. :D :D
