Thought I would post this since I am such a happy customer.  Leather handle bar wrap is available from Mark's Harness Shop, 1089 Springs Road, Springs, PA 15562 (voice mail - 814 662 9800).  I have no affiliation with the shop but I have bought two sets and think they are wonderful.  Price was $24.00 plus $5.00 shipping.  I recommend the natural (tan) leather finish because it darkens quickly. 

Daniel, I think Joel is the one you ask for at Mark's. I got two sets (one tan, one black) from them summer a year ago. How did you mount the tapes? I think Neill Currie used double back tape. I used spray mount on wet leather (the leather tightened as it dried) and I have been very happy with the application for more than a year now.
