Default Crap, anybody got a seat bolt for a 99 Fatty?

Swear to the bike gods it fell into an interdimensional hole. Was taking it the seat off to swap it around for pics to put in a cycletrader listing. Dropped the one, heard it hit the floor, figured I'd pick it up after I got the other one out. Pulled the second bolt, lifted the seat off, swapped the other one on, put the second bolt back on, and looked around for the first one. Nowhere to be found. Took the garage apart looking for it. Craziest thing.

Anyway, anybody have a seat bolt they dont mind parting with? I can throw you a few bucks plus postage, via PayPal.

They are pretty cheap at your local dealer.
Way cheaper than if I mailed you one.

Yeah I just bought a couple of seat bolts for my 95 Heritage at 6 months ago.

I am pretty sure he is talking about the bolts that go in the left and right side of a Softail seat that attach it to the frame near the horse shoe oil tank.
