Revival Motorcycles BMW RNineT Bison Leather Seat and Saddlebag

This stunning BMW RNineT is the work of the Revival Cycles crew here in Austin. The seat, bag and grips are both made from 5 ounce shrunken american bison. The hide has incredible grain and will patina for years. The saddle bag was made to fit just a single macbook and a book with charger. The bike while not the most custom build Revival has put out it's so full of trick parts it's hard to find them all. For a full gallery of the rest of the bike check out Revival Cycles

Crocodile Belly Tree Ergo Slim BMX Seat

This Tree Ergo I recovered in genuine Crocodile belly. Crocodile requires precision when selecting cut cut lines to ensure that the plates fall in a workable area. I backed this one with pig skin to add an extra layer of durability and flex to the finished hide. This hide has a very deep patina and color to it. The outside edges of the plate darken and fade into a rich bright tone. Sunlight really brings out the colors and the photos still don't do it justice. I cant wait to do a two tone Fizik or Selle Italia with it.  Some one email me...
