The Italian Job

Selle SMP: Natural

A simple classic recover for J.A's Selle SMP and matching tape seen here on his Firefly.

AX Lightness: Natural

Fizik Aliante: Spider

Spider's spider saddle!

Fizik Aliante: Half Tone Skull


The skull motif perforated (by hand) to create a half tone effect. A Ziggy Stardust reference in the right eye socket and coloured to coordinate with Andrew's Cannondale Synapse Hi Mod Disc. It was a challenge but very rewarding.
