I've made the same mistake with Ebay. Chalk it up to a learning experience. I don't think you will have much luck improving the seat with a hack saw. But don't let me discourage you. Since it is ugly already then it's fair game. But yeah I've had ugly parts on my bike and I usually get tired of them. I have a tank with a slow leak where the left knee pad should be. I soldered it once but never relined the tank so it started to leak again. it's a very slow leak and never drips. It just stays wet, and ugly. I finally found a better tank and may have it on today. I think I've had the leaky one for about 5 years.
