As part of my BMW R71 combo replica project I've bought a pair of expensive WH style natural leather saddle bags / panniers from Old Timer Garage, Poland.
However, they are very natural new untreated leather with hardly any colour at all - check out this link:

I've researched on-line and believe the originals were various colour shades of mid tan to dark brown.
I've also Googled several leather treatment products such as the following:
- Horse Saddle Leather.
Carr & Day & Martin PURE Neatsfoot oil.
Carr & Day & Martin KO-CHO-LINE.
Effax Leather Balm.
Therefore, I would very much appreciate any advice on the correct WH period colour and leather treatment please. ....
