Selle San Marco Rolls: L'Eroica Colnago

Richard has been restoring and pimping his Colnago for L'Eroica 2016 and asked me to work on his Rolls saddle. He came to me with a design idea incorporating broguing and the clubs logo which I fine tuned to fit the saddle and the leather techniques. He also wanted some custom brass plates featuring the L'Eroica name. Thanks to Kumo Cycles for the pantograph engraving and Silvermist Studio for preparing the brass plate.
