I to own a Kemper Pedersen and I am interested in the saddles you describe. My weight is the same as yours, how do you find the relative comfort of the woven saddle compared to the standard Kemper leather saddle? Are they easy to fit and what is the price? I live in Australia and so can you post it to me? Thanks for any help you can offer.

well to compare the DP woven seat comfort is to say a Brooks seat It's like sitting on a block of wood,the DP seat like a magic carpet as you float while ridding with it . 150.00 US +SH if you have an arch and what color you would like it want in . I do not have the arch at this time made yet.... soon I will .

I would like to go ahead with your woven saddle, I don"t have the arch and there is no hurry, and the bike is close to a British Racing Green that Michael Kemper offers as a colour choice. It looks like it connects to the existing springs at the rear and to a "D" shackle from the webbing on the front? Is there anything more to fitting than that?

Well I also sewed that is ,whip stitch the webbing as not to slip from the buckle helps .yes the Kemper made seat has some curved bar attached then to the seat springs I will make it the same as the original DP cycles. I'll put up a pic of arches as soon I get them made .

Hi there,

I have a DP serial # 4151 size 5 from 1907 with a good seat but I would like to have a replacement so I could finally ride my bike. I have no arch so I would need that as well if it would be possible. I would be very grateful If you will be willing to make one for me. Just tell me how much that would be for a shipment in Italy and I will anticipate the payment via PayPal or bank transfer right away.
Many thanks for letting me know.
Kind regards,

Giorgio

PS: If you wish to see good quality pictures let me have an email address and I will provide.
