Just hit it with a bit of proofide and you're good to go.

For real though, this thing looks like a burnt pancake.

That's an old ADGA. If the frame is good, I have one with a broken frame and good (... well better) leather. It was nothing special so save your money for an Ideale or Brooks.

Fixer-upper for the handy DIY'er - Marktplaats

Description:
"Bike spent some time in a canal. Pick-up in Amsterdam"

While probably still rideable, I expect this bike to house a number of organisms at the moment. There is however quite some rust around the dropouts and the seat tube so at the very least this will be a full strip, clean and repaint.

Saddle looks better than @ncrnelson 's example though.

This is news? Someone here hand-made one of these... oh.... 15? years ago; it would show up at various bike organization fundraising events, etc. Last I remember seeing it was at a WI Bike Fed fundraiser at Saris HQ, with the mayor pedal-blending up margaritas. I just reckoned that people were fabbing up all manner of such things in the intervening years.

I've actually been wanting to start seriously looking into various forms of conversion of leg-crank energy, whether it's kinetic like this (blender, chopper, etc) or potential (storage battery charge), as I hope that after retiring, we'll be living as close to off-grid as possible.

Yup, I heard that too. It's possible I spread it here and you read it. Anyway, the story I heard was that the kids developed an economy among themselves. "I'll pedal for your show if you pedal for mine." Dad was happy. Kids got healthy.

Could be a good deal, but how would one know without wasting time asking the seller for real pictures.
