Mostly I’ve been working on the leather and finishing. Some of my favorite shoes from Italy were finished by hand. I’ve been developing a finishing style for the saddles. Here’s saddle prototype number 3.
This saddle was handed off to a local guy for testing a few months ago. You might see it around Portland if he ever puts in on one of his bikes, which he had not the last time I checked in with him. I’ll give you a hint, he was in a story on bikeportland.org in December.
The leather work is just about done. Before long it will be time to refine the frame.
