Thanks for the input, boys and girls. I thought about going all matchymatchy with the grip colour,
but in the end I thought that a lighter leather that will patina darker was the way to go.
Got a couple of compliments on my inaugural ride up to Squamish with 1151 today, but each to
his own , as we frequently say on this website, in order to maintain social order and not slip
into anarchist name calling!
The tape, bioman, is indeed a tennis racket wrap tape called Gamma gel wrap. First I applied double-sided golf grip tape to the grip, which is super tacky , and then added the leather grip tape.
The pipe is an Agostini flat black from AF1, which sounds friggin amazing. $800 I believe. Got it 3 years ago. I've got a couple more add ons that I'll get up of my lazy ass and put on, and I'll post some
more pics, maybe even right side up ones!
