Celeste (Bianchi) Leather Handlebar Kit


Vintage, retro style leather handlebar cover kit.
All our kits are produced from fine quality British or Italian hides

Perfect for adding that professional finish to your handlebars. First introduced on top of the range machines in the late 50s and to Cinelli's VIP range in the late 70s.

Each handlebar kit contains:

2 quality soft leather covers, perforated for lacing
2 sets of waxed thread (black & cream)
2 blunt end needles
Full photo illustrated fitting instructions
(Bar plugs not included)

A set of handlebars can be completed in approximately 2 hours. These covers will fit most types of drop handle racing bars with a bar diameter of 24mm (+/-1mm).

Fitting the covers is like lacing up a shoe. The leather is laced damp so it will stretch and then shrink dry, giving a smooth, professional, fitted finish.
