Alas...if it's another Unicantor you need, you can get one --> NEW. Your local shop will have to order it through Euro-Asia Imports in Verdugo City (the east valley, man). Be prepared to shell out the bucks. E.S. has a large inventory of new old parts and know perfectly well what fanatics like us will pay for them.

There are a few different models of Unicantors. Suede in black or a dark mousy brown, a polished leather in black or plastic.
