Are you kidding me?

Wire-brush or sandblast, repair, prime-and paint, get the fabric redone by a local upholstery place. Whatever it takes.

That chair is a big part of your identity on this board. I don't know you from Adam, but I know about that f***ing chair.

Stick with your strengths.

+1 GO GREEN! Don't kick it OUT! Get it powder coated at an outdoor furniture rehab place. Go for a record of use; try for another 4 years. Then after you make that, try for 2 more. Put a picture of your chair on your signature line or your AVI. We can all call you the CHAIR GUY from now on.

+1!

It doesn't look that bad! If other folks here can bring a rusted-out old Tetanus-ridden, antique, vintage Vespa full of holes back to glory, you can certainly resurrect that chair of yours. Make it shiny again to match the scoot.

Thank you all for getting back to me so quickly. I do LOVE my chair and so do alot of you. Some of the suggestions were creative, I just wouldn't know how to strap them on, oh did i just say that, anyways, I've had to replace some of the rivets with 10-32 screws and one of the supporting ALUMINUM tubes snapped and I have a pc of PVC holding it together. It is very comfortable since that fix. Don't you all worry your pretty little hearts about my chair, I'll clean it up just as shiny as ever. Laughing emoticon Wha? emoticon although I could still need a MacCabee chair for the garden.

This looks like a worthy replacement. Folded, it's about the size of a laptop. Available at R.E.I.

Besides, if Yardsale straps an electric chair to his scooter, where would he plug it in?

Yardsale
I'd go with an L.L. Bean item.
Simply because they'll replace 'anything at any time' according to their Guarantee & it seems like you need that kind of waranty.
Good Luck!

Yardsale Yardsale had a chair
Strapped to the bike so cozy

It fell apart beneath his ass
And now his cheeks are rosy

OK... this has dragged on for long enough. Costco sells (sold) a chair to exactly replace the MacAbee.

How do I know? I have the same chairs, with and without the side tables. I am the proud owner of four of them...

ebay is your friend http://cgi.ebay.com/Camping-Folding-Sport-Director-s-Chair-Table-Burgundy_W0QQitemZ320410549778QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item4a99f4fe12&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

There's nothing like the old style wood beach chairs. I have one that is 30 years+ old. I found these for you. Mine is similar only it has arm straps and a back pouch. In my younger days I would carry a 12 pack and ice in that thing.

As I recall it wasn't cheap. It cost roughly $63.00 at Costco, the new
chairs don't hold my weight, I'm too tall at 6'5" and weigh in at 270lbs.
The chair has small extentions on the feet to raise it up so I'm not
crouching down to sit. Wha? emoticon
