Twin: SMPs

One's just a little bit fatter than the other. The skinny one's much more sporty. I hope you like your new babys Steve.

Green With Envy: Bars

This would have to be 'The Job That Did My Head In'. Definitely the most complext handle bar covering job I've done. This is the bar pictured in the 'raw' state: the hoods still need to be fitted and the bar ends sorted out. At some stage final pictures will feature on the Cycling Edge Blog. The bars are for the envy bike, for which I not so recently made this. Now I'm looking forward to recovering a few simple saddles; I have 2 SMP Composits, 1 San Marco Aspide and a Specialized Toupe waiting for some attention. Coplex shaped saddles but simple in comparison to these bars.

Tom's Door Handle

I recently completed this job for Tom and Joy. The appartment is on the market and they wanted the worn doorhandle to look and feel just right. Possibly my most unusual leather covering job so far, particularly as I did it in-situ in a not so quiet Middle Park street. Many a passer by glanced my way wondring what I was up to, I could see them in the reflection of the glass door.
