Now comes the fun of patching the inner tube. You may want to get a new seat. From the pic that seat didn't look that great.

I think some duct tape can give it a few more years. .

I'd say its time for a new one. You may find the newer seats much better.

A new one?!!! That's downright wasteful! A new one will cost more than 9 dollar and 20 cent! Round here that's a heap of money. Now, if I could get one for less than that, I'd buy it, but that ain't gonna happen. So I'll just fix the one I got.

There, good as new!

Oh, wait a minute! Here's an update.

I got a new seat for $9.19 in an auction on eBay.

Good thing, if that duct tape didn't leave sticky stuff on your pants, that seat sure would leave some black marks.

New seat: $9.19, Clean pants: priceless

It's certainly not a top of the line Brooks. I was surprised when I won the auction as I had only placed an $11 bid.
