I have acquired a Burley Limbo that was a hanger queen and have put it back on the road. I have a slight problem with the seat; it has a slight left-right wobble. The skewers are tight. The seat is a Cannondale. Is there a problem with exact fit? Or, am I missing something?
I also understand that Cannondale and Burley are out of the 'bent business, right?!
Yes, Cannondale and B urley are out of the bent market!
I've modified my Burley seat fairly extensively with the Rans seatbottom from Calhoun Cycle in Minneapolis.
Wonder if there is some way to shim it up so it is tight? I'm not sure how they got the Cannondale seat to fit the Burley? Or try to build a pair of Burley's "Speed Struts" which might solve the problem!

I have a suspension issue which obviates the use of speed struts. Thanks for the input.
I recovered my seat bottom with denim salvaged from old jeans - had to sew the pieces together - works!
