Default Re: Need idea's on how too recover a schwinn seat

I'll watch for that link, too...

Got a couple so-so seats I don't want to give up....

I guess they use a paper pattern, for starters, when cutting thinner leather for a cover, then stitch it.
A thick leather seat could be made from a raw hide, wet, then clamped in a mold to form it.
But I've never done one before...
I do know it's real difficult to stitch leather without a real machine, and stitching in a straight line is also a difficult thing to do! lol

My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
