"Speedy Dots" Hampsten Gran Paradiso Spirit

About six months ago I recovered this Fizik Arione saddle for a fellow in Austin Texas, he was having a new Hampsten Gran Paradiso custom made. We threw a few design ideas around and eventually settled on this design which I refer to as the "Speedy Dots" pattern. The bike is just finished and looking really great. The leather fro both the saddle and handle bar tape is a full grain vegetable tanned cow hide, notice the natural scar on the back of the saddle.
