I finally got the Raleigh spruced up with brown elkskin leather bar wrap. I tried to get a match for the original antique brown Brooks B17N. The red panniers are mounted on a Eclipse rack I got off a Motobecane I flipped. This is SheRA - my single speed / fixie that I use 2 - 4 times a month for commuting when I feel strong and need panniers and/or fenders.
The wrap is from veloorange.com. It's stitched together with a waxed thread - that took quite a while to do. A coat of neatsfoot oil darkens it (though it's dried a bit lighter).
