They also have matching Ideale 2001 saddles with equally rough leather covers. Has anyone recovered one of these? Id prefer not to toss them.
Before pics are as wanted as any, we want to see what it starts as, the rougher the better for a more dramatic transformation.

Our very own @rhm is the saddle guru and can undoubtedly advise.
