After many months of communication Bernard finally flew down from Joburg with his saddle to have it recovered. He was only here for a few days so we turned it around real quick. A simple recover in a beautiful chocolate brown full grain pull up bovine hide. We’re officially national.
Knowing this saddle was off to Afrikaburn 2013 we had to do something special and unique for our special and unique friend Peta. Nguni hair on and beige hide. It now sits atop a lovely old champagne coloured Italian foldie called Suzanna. Peta learned to ride in the final week leading up to AB so we’re very proud of her. We’d like to think the saddle had something to do with it.
Something a little different. Daniel from Yours Truly in Long Street asked us to wrap his new food cart push handle. We sat for 3 hours on site one morning and hand stitched tan kudu hide to his cart.
Another one that happened so quickly I didn’t get a decent shot. White napa Selle Italia Flite recover for Stan of Bicycle Portaits fame.
The guys responsible for bringing Retrospec bikes into SouthAfrica handed a few saddles to us last year and said we could “go wild”. We finally got a gap in our schedule to complete them. A bit of experimenting happened but the results were quite rad. Unfortunately I didn’t take any good pics before handing them over so this’ll have to suffice for now. I’ll take more photo’s and post another day.
