An almost correct restoration of Armon's Selle Italia Flite Genuine Gel saddle. Completed in kangaroo leather with side panels, perforations, topstitch detail and the three original badges stitched in.

The King Lion: Century 100

The King Lion Selle Italia Century 100 saddle 'restored' for Steve at Velocraft. The red and blue panels are new kangaroo leather topstitched together. We kept the original centre panel to retain the embroidery and painted over the tired leather with some fresh yellow. It's not perfect but definitely looks better than when I received it.

Baum Celaris: Burnt Orange

It's always an honour when Darren Baum asks me to do some custom leatherwork for his personal bikes. The Celaris is the latest model to join the Baum range. I made the handlebar tape and covered a Pro Stealth saddle in black with burnt orange perforations to compliment the frame. Thanks Darren!
