Ouch!

I agree!

No wonder he didn’t keep practicing.

Hard to detect from the picture, but it looks like an old style Schwinn seat base, with nothing on it.

Note: Never buy anything from eBay that you can’t see!

That seat looks bad, but, check out this one. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3629447403&category=2904

That looks like the P.O.S. I learned to ride on, only with some homemade work to the seat. Probably better than the seat that came with mine.
