Custom saddle anyone?
« on: January 20, 2019, 08:16:48 pm »
While idly looking for someone to repair my broken leather saddle, that nice Mr Google found http://www.southlondonsaddles.com/home/ with plastic/ padded saddles recovered with decent leather and often with custom designs.

HK has a favoured Terry saddle that has wornout leather but good base, rails and padding. Hopefully she can get it recovered for not too much more than a replacement saddle (it is difficult to get a Terry in the UK).

Apparently the saddle has been renewed and should be on its way back here to replace the C17S on her Kinesis.

Arrived and fitted. A nice bit of work, particularly for a saddle with a fairly complex profile. It is an older Terry Liberator with a cut-out and deep padding and looks better than new. Very stealth, without any branding or labels.

HK has managed to wear through the leather on her refurbished saddle. Not too surprising, given the miles accumulated since it was recovered. Unfortunately, South London Saddles seems to have closed up shop sometime in the past year.
