I did some digging in my LBS and found two pieces of black leather handlebar wrap. Thickish leather with holes punched down the length of both sides. Nothing else though, no package, instructions, thread, etc.

I've never installed a set before and other than pictures don't ever recall seeing a set installed on a bike in person.

How do I go about installing them especially around the brake, where should the seam go, pattern to stiching, etc. and what else do I need such as type of thread, needle, etc.

Thanks in advance for any help,
