Thanks again for all the advice.
Aluminum foil is working great!
Tried lemon juice & then switched to WD-40. Will post some pictures when done.
Planned on not messing with the saddle. Went for a ride after getting out of the pool & noticed my wet swim trunks made the leather much darker.
Probably use some sort of leather treatment on it & leave it alone.
My son broke one of the leather straps on the saddle bag. They were pretty dry & brittle from hanging upside down in the PO's garage for years (look at them tires) so I'm not that mad at him.
Who sells a nice canvas/leather bag that looks good on these old Raleighs?
I'm trying to decide on which 650A tires to get....
Schwalbe delta cruisers in creme or white wall.
Panaracer Cul de la vie's
Michelin World tours
The cost is not as important as how they'll ride or look on my Sports.
I'm leaning toward the Panaracers, but they seem hard to find & those Creme colored Schwalbes might look pretty dang good with the coffee colored frame & fenders.
