Yah, it's one of mine. The Neil O'Murphy Company buys em from me and resells them. Yes, it'll be cheaper direct from me. I have these made for me in India and ship them over. Pretty good seat and bag all things considered.

I have one on my Green bike and love it!!!I still need to strip the paint or whatever that stuff is off the leather. It's a little slick.

While I haven't tried it myself, I was told by a customer that lacquer thinner takes the varnish right off. Then he took leather dye and restained the top to suite his requirement. Try it and let me know how it comes out. If you screw it up I'll see about covering you.
