Uncovered seats - are they worth anything?

I recently put up my black and silver laredo seat for sale. I ended up selling just the covers to a guy in Italy. He had no interest in the actually seat. Now I have one decent uncovered seat that I have no use for. Does anyone know what a good price for it would be? Thinking of putting on feeBay.

it depends who is looking for it, but not a lot.

If you had a whole set incuding the rear fold and tumble in good condition but without covers I would buy them from you. $150 plus shipping (shipping being $200) would be fair as they are just the frames with some 30 year old foam that would need replacing.

A single seat is a bit more difficult because I would have to match it to the other seat in size and shape. Not much in other words. $35??

Bagus if I had them they would be yours but unfortunately I have one seat that might be useable.

I too am needing a rear seat

I have a stock nutmeg rear in MA. I also have a nice new black vinyl cover for UT with hog rings to attach. This isn't a cheap slip on cover.

Hmmmm. For someone like me who runs Bestop seat covers it would work just fine. What kind of shape are the mounting holes in? The rear bolts on my passenger seat just busted loose because the frame's rusted. I've patched a seat frame like this in the past with angle iron, but would be easier to slap another seat in there.

Honestly, I think shipping cost would be more than the value of the seat though.
