    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.
