I put together a basic step by step about this leather fork stopper that I made to match these grips I made. You can see the grips here. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=57728 Leather cut to size. Drew a grid on the leather with a pencil. Stamped using drill press. Arbor press would be much better. Fininshed embossing Sanded the edges round then colored leather with leather dye. Drilled holes using drill press and started lacing. Lacing complete. I put a cork backing in for grip, padding and to wick any potential moisture away from the paint. Finished lacing, facing down. Then applied finish top coat to leather. Done!
