Correcting a Sticky Seat

When I bought my '84 the seat was quite sticky and pretty unpleasant. I thought I'd try a little restoration before sending it out for a recover.

I brought the seat inside and rubbed it down with Son of a Gun. I did this a few times paying particular attention to the sticky area (the actual seating posiition.) The bottle said that I could buff it out with a damp cloth to avaoid a shiny finish. This I did after each of the several applications, all over the course of a few days.
The result was the stickiness disappeared. Being an '84 it still doesn't look like new, of course. Because the machine is still a bit of an ongoing project, I wanted to avoid expenses in comfort and eye-candy and focus initial investments in the drivetrain and chassis. I've been riding it quite a bit without the stickiness returning, and many moths have passed. When I'm satisfied with the essentials, I may be investing in a recover/repadding, but for now we're all set.
