    We have a leather shop in town that will releather a Brooks for $40 or so. They can do custom branding on it as well.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.

    I would imagine it is difficult. If it were easy, Everyone would make homemade saddles instead of buying
    a Brooks.

    You might ought to see if Brooks will re-leather a saddle for you.

    and whatever you think about him is probably true.

    edit: upon actually reading the link i realized i'm talking about something different, yet intimately related.

    Deer hide is too thin for saddles, sorry. I'd place a bet that anyone who could do a re-leather job as good as a new Brooks would charge more then just buying a new one.

    Be careful what grade of leather and the dye used on it.
    It may stain your butt.
