What's going on with my seat, it used to be green with metalic flecks.
Now it's turning black/brown, what's weird is it's been in a bike box in a shipping container for the past three months, not being ridden.
It was green when it went in with only a small amount of brown on the side where the old sissy bar was.

I put the bike back together the other night and noticed it, then the next day it seemed like it had gotten worse.
Is it rusting inside or something?

How hot is it outside? Then think how hot that shipping container is. Old vinyl is not very heat tollerant.

Wow, you reckon it was the heat?
I never even thought of that, far out.

I know it was hot in there, we had some melted candles and other things too.

I see an insurance claim coming.
