You first have to figure out if your starting point is worth saving

I was thinking that this Adamo might be worth it. I'm always concerned about re-covering a saddle because the padding underneath may have lost it's original qualities which made it properly supportive. You know, like a running shoe with over 500 miles on the pair. Recovering this Adamo might be a little tricky because of the letters are embossed into the surface.
