Can I turn a Brooks Flyer saddle into a Brooks B17 (... with reasonable effort ... whatever that means)? Has anyone ever tried?

For this, I would need to replace the frame assembly of the Flyer saddle with the frame assembly of the B17 saddle. The frame assembly can be purchased separately. As far as I know, both saddles have the same dimension.
Anyway, I am afraid I will have to detach the leather of the saddle. This would require the removal of the rivets which come without a threads. Has anyone ever tried and can report on their experience?
