Bates swinging fender stock saddle

Help me find one!

A couple of points tho....I'd prefer one with flock and not Cair...are they still made that way? I see a couple of aussie websites list them as available with wool flock.

Two: I can't find any North American website that lists them at all. Anyone know of a place? I live in Europe but the delivery time I've been given is 3 months. For that and the high price I could have a custom made.

Any Aussies out there know of any places that have them available and will deal with us foreigners?

I'm fine with used actually, I just can't find any for sale.
The main Bates contact has already told me I need to deal with a local dealer. :(
I have tested it through the local fitter but only a cair and the fit was not what I would consider perfect. With wool, it could be adjusted but with cair, you're stuck with what you have unless you can get the right shims placed. When I suggested shims to the local dealer he looked at me like I was from Mars. He also claimed they were not made with wool.
