shellacing a cloth handlebar tape is a nice way to give your bike a classic look.

Sad thing is that cloth handlebar tape in colors other than black seems to have vanished rom the market; Rivendell is out of stock...

so i thought of alternatives. Cinelli sells a modern "cork" padded handlebar tape in color "nature" (see http://www.bike24.net/p1319.html, bottom left sample), but it is just a little bit to light in color to match with a Broks saddle.

i wonder i it might be possible to put shellac on one o those tapes? anybody ever tried it?

thanks or any hints,
