Leather grips


Recommended Posts

I didn't realise it will be so difficult, or that I am looking at the wrong places. Looking for vintage looking leather / pleather grips and even saddles. I am based in Cape Town; short of getting it off bikeinn which will hit me with taxes and handling charges, does anyone know where one can find some locally? Budget project, not fussy about branding, nothing too fancy. Thank you!!

I understand that Woodheads (Leather work in CT) do a day a week where they are open to the public to request one off designed and manufactured leather goods.

This looks like something they can whip out chop chop
