7 years later and Skully's work on my seat is still admired everyday. Thanks Skully! :D
Thought you were going to say 7 years later and it's still not ready
@nosferatu lovely to hear!
Still do the odd chop & lettering if anyone's interested.
I'd be in the market for a custom brooks, is it just the swallow that you'd work on or what saddle would you recommend for the best results?
you figured out cabmiums yet pal?
Just saw this^
Figured out what? Chopping them?! No ta.
Maybe stamping them? I dunno!
Hey I missed your post ages ago.
I trim Team Professional preferably. B17 if you really want, not recommended unless you’re light. Swallows are the look I go for, so I wouldn’t trim one of those. Can stamp a few letters in most Brooks, or top quality saddles also made of tensioned hide like Berthouds. Not possible on cheap copies. Sorry so slow! Best to @~ tag or PM people here to get a quick reply. Cheers.
hey @Skülly I got an old Selle Italia Flite 1990 that's looking a bit worse for wear. Any chance you're able to reupholster it?
Not my cup of tea, sorry.
Flites are very nice stripped though ...
I do think someone on this forum did re-dress old Selles etc. but I can’t remember who. Maybe do some searching to see if you can find them. Good luck.
Ello ello, still got tools?
I might want a little lettering put onto a leather belt if possible.
Just saw this!
Yeah come round you can stamp that thing and we’ll have a brew
I'll shout ya when I'm around x
Big man! Might send a customer saddle your way, by send I mean I'll swing around with it.
Brooks Swift that needs de-hammocking!
Turns out the belt wanted to die instead and broke shortly after I made the last post. I've asked santa for a new one, no idea if it'll be leather though.
