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.

 

Handlebars #031

We met Rizqua at the Cape Town Urban Bicycle Expo. After chatting a while her husband went to the car and brought these handlebars to us that were destined for her bike build. “Tassles like that one!” she said with a beautiful smile, pointing at Timea’s Desert Princess. Seems this tassle thing is quite admired. Thanks for the lovely photo’s Riz.B Photography.

Saddle #030

This one happend real quick for Starling & Hero. So quick we didn’t even manage to get a photo of the finished product. Emile was building a birthday present bike and wnated a leather saddle to match the leather grips from Jason at Iliad. The picture was taken before the natural nude cowhide was dyed. She must’ve been born in ’82!
