Black Cherry Cross



Some black leather bar tape for Frank's new Parlee z5, it's a slow project build but he's promised to show me the bike when it's done. The plan is to lay the tape over some gel pads for added cushion cumfort. Fancy cross stitch tripple perforated, the fanciest bar tape I've done, and each piece measures in at around 95", that's a lot of individually punched holes. Single layer of bag nappa cow hide, 1 join on each piece but potentially the bar will be fully wrapped before reaching the join.

I ought to do some nice tape for my Hillman.

Frank found me in Bicycle Victoria's Ride On Magazine.
