Hi! Just became the proud owner of a '69 Raleigh Ladies Sport, bought off of Ebay. It came with a large-ish black leather saddle bag (cloth-lined), that I assume is Brooks, though I could be wrong.
Right now it isn't in the best shape to hold things. It isn't particularly cracked (besides the straps, which have seen better days), it just can't hold its shape. I'm afraid that if I kept anything in it I would loose everything I put in. Despite this it is a pretty bag and I would love to use it rather than buying something new.
My question is: Is there any way to reshape this leather bag? Would leather conditioner help, or would that just make it worse? Any ideas?
