leather saddle recovery
I have been teaching myself to put new leather on worn out Brooks saddles and the like.
My saddles look good and they are really tough. The leather I use is hard and thick and should last you thousands of miles.
These things take time, so the service is not cheap. Depending on what kind of rivets, and that kind of thing, we're looking at about a hundred bucks.
If you're interested, please get in touch!
Also I need old saddles with dead leather.
