Malvern Star: Step Through

Panelled, quilted and piped; a play on the classic quilted look saddle. The original was vinyl with fake embossed quilting. Now recovered in kid skin with real stitched quilting. An interesting project, quite a different beast to the modern sports saddle and requiring a modified set of techniques. Luckily we managed to find a leather that almost perfectly matches the grips Richard "Fly" sourced online. Red frame with new paint and fenders painted up to match the leather work. Looking forward to viewing the final product.
