Leather-wrapped fuel key cut out.


Treated the edges with some brown shoe polish


Final shape and sanding on the Bloodwood ignition key.


Coat of varnish really brings out the deep red colour.

Forgot to post this last time: Both keys finished and mounted on a ring, along with a custom leather cord/fob I made (so I can grab them out of my pocket easily but also not scratch the tank).





Bonus: A more recent pic of the little Rebel.



That's it for this year. Will surely be up to more shenanigans come summer. Already have a new chain waiting to be mounted, and a set of sprockets on order.
