Today's Handlebar Tape Follies
Taping my 1984 Del Rey. I decided to give the harlequin a rest on this bike. Here is the raw tape and cord whipping, pretty butt ugly bike at this point:
The theory is some amber shellac will turn the bright green into dark olive and the white string to brownish gold to match the bike. Gee, hope it works, those were my last rolls of green handlebar tape.
<off to work, hoping for the best....>
Now here it is after one amber coat of shellac. I may just stick w/clear for further coats...
