So I did this little project last night and posted this up over on the weight weenies forum but figured I share it here as well.

Weight Weenies • View topic - Seat Tuning 101

Only took about 2.5 hours (not including the cure time of course) and it came out pretty decent for my first time ever doing something like this. I plan on using it on my road bike as I don't think I trust my work that much to put it on my SS and ride it in the woods. But the simple part of stripping off the leather and padding netted a 30g weight reduction alone and that saddle I would have definitely ridden in the woods since the rails were untouched at that point.
