I'll call and check- I was told the foam I got was better for seats as it always returns to its original shape instead of flattening out over time
I think I may have found it cheaper here, maybe you can get samples from this place http://www.rochfordsupply.com/product_l ... atID_E_412

MO FIRE MO WING .. just build a cool bike and have fun
I thought I'd bring this back to the top since I'm thinking of trying my hand at covering a couple of prewar seats. I have access to this really cool foam rubber. I'm not sure what it's called but it has some use in the production of conveyor belts. My brother works there and this foam is one time use so it goes home with everybody. It returns to it's original shape when you take the pressure off, and supposedly never gives out. Also I can layer it up to get whatever thickness I need. I'm also trying vinegar bath for a skiptooth chain. Any tips?
It's easier to shine like chrome when you're surrounded by rust

Good choice on the seat pan change as that first one was a ladies pan I would have liked to see what you came up with as far as a finished product.. dern exercycle!
It'll rub out.
Hey Bill, regarding sitting on a solid pan, the shape of the pan, which conforms to the human anatomy, it way better than a hard, generic 'sports' saddle, as on your Collegiate. On my traveling motorcycles I ran solo saddles (solid pan, thin foam and leather top) for over 150K miles. Yeah, bike saddles tend to be smaller, but if the shape matches your butt......remember all those old farm implements that had steel, no padding seats? They were made for a farmer to sit in all day.
So many bikes, so little time.......
