Does anybody know where I can find a good replacement seat (part number) for one of my 1886's? I see many on Ebay but none listed for the old Bolens.

Hello, I've put this seat on a couple of my '86 's and it's pretty close size wise to original, not to bad looking,comfortable, to bad not available in Brown, I'll check fitment and get back to you, but I believe it was a direct bolt on if you have the seat bracket with the arch spring, here's some pics of one I put it on.

Does it have a metal pan or is it plastic?

The ones I used have metal pans with the beefed up drilled and tapped bushings for bolting the bracket to the seat (or vise-verse)

Here is a pic of the tag off of one of them.

If you plan on spend very much time in the seat look for one with a high back. I have found this seat to be very comfortable. I am almost sure that I did not pay that much for them either. It has a steel base with many different holes drilled and tapped. I have one on my 1455 at present.
