    My new bike

    Its an older Worksman Cycle.

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    Im looking for leather...long shot I know. I guess I'll just have to go with vinyl.

    I guess now would be a good time to ask anyone if they have a VERY NICE (preferably white) vinyl springer seat they'd consider trading away. Anyone?
    Wordbiker, would that dye work on those rubbery seats? like the one on the bike pictured above?

    Tandy has white leather coloring. They also have white leather.

    And here is some white leather dye on eBay.

    It will work on any vinyl and many plastics. A test swab would prove it. I dyed this black tool pallet first white, then red.



    The nice part is it's dye, not paint so it won't rub or flake off.

    It's also known perhaps to some (or maybe just ME) as the "bite your buns" seat

    As for the bike, it definitely Works, man.

    wowee look at that sadde. I've never heard of lepper saddles before, but how comfortable is it? Do tell.
    Does it absorb the sidewalks pretty well?

    Every saddle I try causes me to walk funny for the next couple days, if you know what I mean.

    first hand account, right here. I know what saddle Im getting next.

    peter white cycles says "oh they break, so we don't stock them anymore, we only have Brooks saddles". Sounds kind of fishy to me.


    Honestly, what breaks? the seat frame? My god you could just MIG weld it back together. looks like 1/8th inch steel to me.

    look at the front spring on that. Doesnt look cheap to me. Do you think a 190 lb person would be heavy enough?

    I have never heard of Leppers breaking. Im 212lbs and the Leppers fine, and I altered the frame on the saddle to get the seat post clamp to fit. The guy that had it before me drilled another hole in the frame too! I must have ridden the Lepper 150 miles easy with no problems.

    Lepper is the only other European high quality leather saddle maker apart from Brooks:

    Lepper BV - leren fietszadels, voor comfort en tegen zadelpijn

    Its outstanding for durability and comfort. Well known in its native Netherlands, not widely distributed stateside as Brooks.
