Saddle #101

Billy Stelling dropped off his old Selle Italia which was after a much needed recover. The brief was to cover it in black leather and to work in some orange to match the colour of his mountain bike. We  used beautifuly textured black Kudu leather and an orange waxed thread.

This specialized saddle was done for Jan at Dahon Bikes. Recovered in luxurious tan coloured leather with a subtle debossed logo and some hand stitching to finish it off.

If you find yourself in Bree Street, Cape Town, then pop into the Dahon shop. Some really cool fold-up bicycles available and you may catch a glimpse of Jan’s saddle!

Paul Dalton, from Stellenbosch, brought us another one of his Selle Italia Flite’s to have recovered. We did one similar to this a while back for Paul’s road bike, Saddle 027, and up until then we hadn’t attempted a saddle with a hole in the centre. Paul was very stoked with the way his road saddle came out and wanted the same thing for his mountain bike. We used a tan coloured leather with functional hand stitching to accentuate the beautiful curves of this Selle Italia.
