Christmas Surprise II

To match Michael's Basso track frame this set was a surprise gift from the lovely Elise. The saddle is an old Ariake Aero Jaguar also picked up from the recent swap meet at Seven Seeds. The original saddle was velour covered and the foam padding was quite perished. So I ended up replacing all of the padding before applying the new leather cover. Hand stitched toe straps to match and, still to come, stitched leather handle bar wrap.
