Saddle replacement -CX500 custom.
« Started on: 08-Dec-20, 11:45 »
Looking for advice on saddle restoration. I'm in Brisbane.
The leather has split and is also coming away from the pan, the pan has rusted away at the lowest outside mid-section (This is were some seats have the strap screwed into the pan).
Any recommendations on replacement pans, Brisbane saddlers, whole original-looking replacements, or people who have patch welded pans before?
Cheers guys

It may need more than a recover and possibly a foam replacement.

the foam is fine and would be easy to sort out.
I'm looking for guidance on the rusting saddle pan itself.

got a mate who does panel beating ? Its a pretty easy task to cut out the rusty section and replace it with new panel steel , welded in . Coat of primer , top coat and you are good to go.
