Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Here's a link for you (the Honey color)

http://www.amazon.com/Brooks-Perfora.../dp/B000OUA3GW

...or just go with the same color as your saddle...IMO that looks best.

Woah that's pretty expensive for the leftover scraps from the manufacturing process of a brooks saddle, that would otherwise end up in the trash; I swear they should include matching bar tape with their saddles...

Those tires look like they are worth every penny you paid for them. If I were you, I would match the black, not the gum wall. Any light colored tape ends up looking like ass if you do any serious riding.

those arent the actual tires...just a pic for a quick color reference....its going on a 80's schwinn traveler that i got on craigslist for 20 bucks and i dont do any "serious" riding, so im sure they will look fine. i have black tape on now and just feel like doing a different color that will match the tires i have.
