Step 1: Gather Materials
- Leather for covering your seat
- Hobbyist contact cement
- Scissors for cutting leather
- Marker or Pen
- Bicycle saddle
-Techshop ( optional, but nice to have a place to layout your project)
Step 2: Remove the Old Cover
Step 3: Cut the Leather Out
You can simply use a pen or marker to mark the perimeter of this.
Cut about a quarter inch offset ( outward) so you have enough material to wrap around the bottom lip.
Step 4: Apply Contact Cement and Stretch Over
Once this happens, stretch the fabric over the saddle.
I ended up doing this process in two steps. I applied contact cement and stretched the leather over for the front have, then the back half. This made it a bit more manageable.
