Chocolate Brown Bar Wrap and Saddle

The kangaroo covered saddle and stitched bar wrap are for a bike AJK has built himself, Complete with belt drive and soon to be painted. I expect it will be a true gentleman's bicycle.

I recently completed this Rolls recovery with the names of three of the greats of cycling. The saddle is for Sir Paul Smith. Thanks for the shoes Sir Paul, I love them.


SLR Selle Italia: Speedy Grey Mango

A new shaped Selle Italia SLR saddle recovered in the style of the "Cars and Bikes" speedy dots pattern. Matching bar tape, both in that beautiful natural veggie tanned grey leather. Pretty sure this is what Bike Tart should have on his new Baum Ristretto with purple perforations. This set with orange highlights is for Andrew.

Indian Motorcycles

I recently completed this saddle for a replica Indian Motorcycles bicycle project being undertaken by Kieran in Queensland.  Here's a link to a forum where he's been documenting the build including building the fibreglass saddle 'blob' which is the base I've padded and upholstered. It's one of the more unique projects I've taken on and I am extremely happy with the way it turned out. Looking forward to seeing the finished bike at Pushies Galore.
