Please see picture. I plan to sandblast and repaint this but would like to find another. Easy enough to fabricate but the fitted rubber piece is kind of nice.

Has anybody seen these for sale anywhere?

thanks,
Dave

Image The rubber on these is too thin to adequately pad the mast.

Several months ago, when I had a similar problem, I found a piece of tire retread on the road while bike riding. I took it home, trimmed it so it would fit inside the mast support, used contact cement on both the retread and the existing rubber on the mast support, drilled a small hole on both sides of the mast support and retread, and used pop rivits in both holes to keep the retread in place forever. I don't think it will ever wear out and it works perfectly.
