robbie fellows asked,

is tony colgrave the only source for brooks saddle repair? i have a pre war saddle i believe that needs work the one with the long nose.

or does someone have a nice one? +++++++++++++++++++ Tony Colegrave did a late 30s B-17n for me this past year. It was not inexpensive by my standards, but worthwhile. I did not send him the old cover, but the new one exactly matches the embossing, emblems, etc on the original. I am a Colegrave fan.

BTW, for those who don't know, Mr. Colegrave is a retiree, a hobbyist. He never worked for Brooks, and his true passion seems to be much older saddles than the 30s.
