Looks tidy now. I think a real challenge will be to recover the Profil and do it properly.

after few weeks of searching i gave up on white suede leather. gonna go for normal white leather..
did re-covering yesterday. from the top it looks tidy, and im happy with the result. inside though, different story. as i was using kitchen knife ( :oops: ) some cuts are not accurate
but overall, for the first time i think its fine.
anyways i still got enough leather to cover 3 more saddles

Very Nice...but why not just buy a track frame instead of spending so much effort and money on a conversion? (a question - not a crticism!)
