twins - 2 Schwinn Run a Bout Stingrays

Wife picked up 2 Schwinn runabout bikes on yard sale because she figured they were cool, and future kinds would enjoy them...
They seem to be old - 1970 (BF and CF serial) and are all original, a bit dirty though.
The only problem is - one has cracked Fulcrum Clip Sleeve - so cant switch gears on it. I cant seem to find anything close to original replacement.

Cool bikes, I don't think they came with those seats though. Looks like the one close in the picture is set up for a tall person. Might be dangerous tht way. I think someone around here might have the part you need, quite a few Schwinn people here.

Judging from original add and stickers on the back of the seat - they are original. Seat post are the same, one is just fully extended.
I don't have enough post to PM members or post new thread in parts wanted, so hopefully some one will see this post when it comes to cable stop / Fulcrum Clip Sleeve:
