you don't need to soften the front anyway. a lot of people just do the back, where your backside goes.
Ya, I noticed that too before I bought it. I figured it was still good on 2 out of the 3 front rivets, so it was worth a shot. Thanks for the heads up on softening. I know it's going to be a challenge to restore this thing, if it's even possible. But, if it works, it should look sweet! Plus, it being old and tattered might deter people from thinking about stealing it :x
