Gutter Lunch MDMA?

Hand embroidered Rolls, no seams. Gutter Lunch remains a mystery. MDMA = Melbourne District Messengers Association. If it get ridden I don't know hoe long the stitrching will last.

Oh yeah, this is my desk at work, my real job. Lists and spreadsheets and knitting needles.....

Honey Walnut SMP

James' 2nd Busyman covered SMP Saddle. This time the base is a full carbon fibre shell with Inox alloy rails, the leather is kangaroo hand dyed by me to match some honey coloured Brooks leather bar tape. The idea is that the saddle and bar tape simultaneously take on their vintage patina with wear, sweat and leather conditioner. In other words they age gracefully.

A difficult saddle to cover, it required a different template pattern and to make things more interesting the rails are not removable.

Destination: the saddle will complete James' new titanium Baum Corretto custom build.
