I've seen people shallac cork wrap and other non leather material to attain that classic leather look. However, while at the lbs the other day my gf fell in love with the owner's bike who had shallac'd his toshi wraps along with the twine work.
My gf bought some brooks leather wraps to match her seat. I've done research about the leather wrap and it seems that it wears out quick and turns into "zombie flesh". With this said, would it be okay to shallac leather wrap? Also, will the surface be slippery due to the nature of the finish? Furthermore, is it just stupid to do that to real leather bar wrap?
