Saddles #009 & #010

Emile from Woodstock’s newest LBS Starling & Hero asked us to breathe some new life into two old saddles he didn’t know what to do with. Both of them are quite unique and are now for sale at S&H.

This Viscount is similar in style to the 80’s Turbo’s and Rolls and has some interesting clear plastic details under the nose and tail. We wanted to customise the saddle and incorporate the S&H logo and this is what we came up with. White calf skin with red and white cross-stitch details.

   

The second saddle is a real collectors item. It’s an old Aero Saddle made in Colorado USA. It was fairly banged up but we’ve restored it in our own unique style. Rich brown full grain leather, hand stitched central cut-out, perforated seat pad and hand fitted copper rivets make this by far the most challenging but best piece to have worked on yet.
