Recovered Saddle is a guy in Texas, me, who like bikes. I also like to work with my hands. A few years back when I was building a new bike, I wanted a saddle to match the leather bar tape I bought. Since there were no saddles on the market in the right color, I went to the leather store and bought some leather that matched the tape, took an old Selle Italia Flite and set about figuring out how to recover it.

It took me a while but I finally got it figured out and finished. I posted the saddle to one of the cycling forums I frequented and people loved it. They wanted to know if I would do a saddle for them. I figured I’d give it a try so I put the call out for saddles I could use for practice. In they poured and so I worked. A few were not so good, most were pretty good and a few were good enough for me to merit starting the business. So I setup a website thinking I would be thrilled with one saddle per month the first year. I had a dozen orders in the first 5 weeks and it hasn’t slowed down since.

So now you know the story.
