I don't know if you can see it in the picture(click to enlarge) but the original Brook saddle was really warped and dry so first thing I did when I brought it home was to apply a generous amount of leather cream; sprayed quite of bit of water both on top and underneath the saddle; strapped the seat into a nice shape and tied it over night. Fortunately, the next morning, the Saddle took on a decent shape and the leather seems to be salvageable. Today, I inflated the tires and rode around the block in my neighborhood and thought how nice the bike was. But for now, it is sitting in my garage and I haven't had anytime to work on it more. I will upload some more pictures later.
