Having a quick peek at the brooks saddle I saw plenty of surface rust etc.. on the springs so I decided I would start there and strip it down. The intention being to soak the parts in oxalic acid to remove the rust, then clean and decide if they should be re-chromed.

Notice the saddle it is actually green but looks black due to grime and possibly the wax/leather care that has previously been used on it. I will ask on the forum if anyone has any ideas about bringing the colour back out.
