Call Andrew Leighton of RK Leightons in Birmingham England.
They made many of the English bike seats "back in the day" and are still in business.
Andrew is the son of the founder of the business and knows his onions about seats.
They are happy to supply direct to US and with the current state of the dollar/pound exchange rate it should be a bargain.
I have ordered from them direct in the past and been very happy with the outcome.

Leightons is known for their high-quality seats, but they have lost their metal fabricating source and are unable to supply complete seats for some models. I've had their 650SS seat on order for four years now, but despite encouraging rumblings every once in a while, they are not able to provide an ETA for it.

Oscar, are you looking for the bigger, wider A10 seat? Maybe Leightons can supply cover and foam if you can find a seat pan.

Nick, that's listed wrong. That seat is for an early A50/A65.

Still looking for a seat for my A10 swing arm. I would prefer an original seat or New replica that has been made in England. I now know there are many different versions. Rips and tears in the cover are OK as I can always have it recovered. Someone must have one !
