Sorry guys - I stopped visiting this page for a while so didn't see your question about my seat. Yup, British Racer in Italy is where I got it. Obviously it's been on the bike for over a year now, and still looks brand new. I keep my bike in my studio when not riding, but still ride pretty much every second day. I guess the seat is plenty comfortable because I never notice it. I did notice the stock seat - it was too wide. I can ride for ages no problems at all for my backside. It's my hands which complain, because of arthritis I fear. But the seat is great. I still have the BC Slammer but it never gets used.
Today I covered my stocker with some leather I got at Joan's fabric. We'll see if it last. If not I'll be in the market for a brown seat.
I didn't remove the stock cover, I just went over it. Not sure if that is the correct way of doing this.
