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

    ...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.
