Where to find a red seat for my cruiser?

i just bought a beautiful black and red Electra cruiser, but the seat is falling apart. I'd like to find a replacement in red. I've searched but can't seem to find any red cruiser-style seats with the massive foam and spring supports on the bottom. Anybody know where to find this?

If your mechanicals aren't in ruin, reupholstering it at a good upholstery shop is an option.

This link is to my big 17 page thread Tempest... post 315, showing the results I had with my Schwinn OEM Viscount seat and the much worse off seat of a 3-speed Hawthorne.

Electra use to (and as far as I know still does) sell just seats online. I don't know if that helps.

The rato? Is that an online shop? A Google search turns up nothing. Could you perhaps supply a link?
