6 years ago I shipped a seat from my '85 to Florida. At that time the shipping was around $85, size and weight. I don't think the pandemic has much to do with today's prices. If anything, it may just take longer.I think the carriers (UPS, FedEx) are taking advantage of the pandemic to raise their prices.
Unfortunately I have to work that day. But if you know anyone who is driving down from the Portland area I'll let you have it for free.BretC,
I have a proposition for you. May 23 the Oregon Vintage Motorcycle show and swap meet is in Corvallis OR. It's at Benton County Fairgrounds. I'll be driving up from Coos Bay OR. If you meet me there I'll give you fifteen bucks for the seat and pay your way into the show. ($5.00) I want the complete seat, not just the pan.
Not only will you get rid of the seat, you see some beautifully restored classic bikes and have a great time. It's well worth the drive just for the show!!
Give me a call if you're interested.
