It was a £12.50 that auction site purchase of a whole fleece which I shaped and sewed myself. It is fitted over the original saddle and held in place by elastic string fed through webbing loops.

About a weekends work.

Yep, the whole lot has cost me about £65.00 give or take a few pence.

As the West Countyman said to the Welsh farmer

 

'Ere boy, are you shearing that sheep?"

 

"No boyo, you get your own".............

 

I'll get me sheepskin coat....

Well done Brian. :thumbsup:

I wouldn't even notice that's DIY, very nicely done and it will look even better when powder coated.

I looked at the Kriega OS kit, very nice, but a complete outfit was over £300. And you still had to buy a frame to fit them to. The OS32 bags dont fit to their fabric base, which itself is nearly £80.
