    Recovering worn out saddles?

    Does anyone know if/where I can get some ripped and worn out saddles recovered? I love my SSM bontrager saddles, and I've got a few of them but they are all in desperate need of help. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Not sure what you want to pay, but this guy does a good job.

    The price we pay, right? $60 a seat is a little more than I wanted to spend, but I do not like any other vintage seat as much. It's not like they're making more of them...

    Check the custom car/motorcycle upolsterers in your area, I had the original cover reinstalled by a car specialist. Did an awesome job and cost next to nothing. When the guy gave me an estimate he looked at and said, "this is something we can do during a break", simple stuff for them.

    Doh! I know a few auto upholsterers and it never occurred to me. Good tip, I'll see what they say.

    Depending on the condition, ive had my shoe guy refurb a few of my old saddles. Its usually around 20 bucks. They can re dye fill in some imperfections etc., I may post a before and after in the next week or so. I have also redone my own saddles using 3M adhesive and using ultra suede, Some are easier than others. Turbo saddles are not that tough to recover.
