Fizik Aliante: Baseball

Kevin was interested in a saddle and bar tape set with design references from the 2001 Audi TT baseball interior. The leatherwork in the car specifically takes the leather lashing from ma baseball mitt. This would not have been practical on a bicycle saddle so I designed the saddle with a baseball stitch and the typical tan of a baseball mitt.

Fizik Arione: Knuckles

Joachim is having his Hampsten repainted with a different theme. Taking reference from the knuckle details on classic driving gloves and a perforation pattern typically used on brogue shoes. The bike was originally a deep grey with mango anodised highlight components and the leather was grey with orange detailing. This is how it looked two years ago after several years of riding as photographed by The Radavist and this is how the original leatherwork looked when brand new. The new paint will be a lighter blue subdues blue.

Brooks Cambium C17: Watch Mechanisms

Brooks Cambium C17 covered in blue leather with silver perforated motif taking reference from the mechanisms of a timepiece. The first attempt had some technical problems so I made a small 3 slot card wallet with the discarded cover. This one is for a Firefly build.
