Cool Ran across some beautiful oil-tanned leather last week...

...and decided to have my seat recovered. Came out nice! It's not perfect, but with the thickness of the leather, it's about as good as it's going to get. Once it wears in, I may have it re-stretched.

Nice.

I have some leather on hand that is close to that color. I may spend a rainy day re-covering my stock seat. I have the quilted seat in brown and I have reshaped the foam but I think the original seat shape is still a little better.

I've been good with the comfort level of the stock seat, so I just had my guy recover what came from the factory. We'll see how things wear in!
