Step 3: The grips
1. Measure the dimensions your pieces will nee to be ( you best measure every layer apart because every layer will become bigger.
2. Sew the peaces together (yes by hand) with a thick needle and hight quality wire ( don't pull too hard because leather can rip.
3. measure and sew the sides of the grips ( it gives it i finishing look)
I used a some material so the grips won't move, a lear of thick, soft leather for the centre and a smooth hard leather for the outside that will fit the colour of leather of the rest of the bike.
It is normal that it takes a long time to do these grips it took me 12 hours for the both of them!
The pictures gives u an idea of the result the kind of stitch pattern is of course to your own liking.
