after seeing a thread about reskinning old, tired out saddles and desperately wanting to do something about mine I thought may as well give it a go..
I used some leather from a jacket i've had almost as long as the bike itself (been meaning to throw it out tbh).
After spending a bit of time prepping the seat, removing the old skin and any remains of glue all i did was paste on some evo-stick impact glue and wait for it to dry for half hour...or go from a milky to clear like it says on the tin. Done this to both the top and base of seat and to the leather section being used. Once ready it was placed over and stretched out as much as i could. A final trim around before sticking the overlap to the base making sure everything was as smooth as could be. Bulldog clips were used to clamp all around for a few hours to ensure a nice secure, tight bond and hey presto!
Not sure if i might try and get it restapled somehow with some 4mm staples but after seeing how strong the bond is i doubt it would need it.
Very pleased with the way this turned out. It's just a tiny bit of luxury plus was nice to keep the stock seat and bring it back to life again.
Might try and reproduce a small GT logo on the side at some stage using a stencil and paint but we'll see.
