New Hutch Zap Pads - and the quality is incredible. The stitching is beautiful, and the foam is very high quality. Very well done, John!

Here are some quick pics from my little point and shoot camera, I can take better ones if you all want.

Look fantastic. Is the lettering on the handlebar pad on an angle or is the fabric just twisted a little? It looks like it is off slighlty.

Who owns the rights to the name "ZAP PADS"?

I asked the same thing to no Avail, I guess he can infringe but will sue if anyone else tries...

I believe that John owns the name. I seem to remember reading it in one of these threads....

It looks off to me too.

Look at each end of the pad where it comes to a point. You will be able to see that it (the pad) is twisted a bit.

I see that now, thanks!
Spicoli
Look Killer !!!

Are we going to see a lightning bolt "non hutch" version ?

I'd take a set of chromeys with the blue bolt....

i think they look awful, the sewing is all crooked...you get someone in a nursing home to stitch those up?

The logos are screen printed in decent ink.

Would it be possible to get a blue padset with a white lightning bolt for straight crossbar handlebars? Thanks, Matt ...
John De Bruin
I'd really prefer to do the Zap Pads lightning bolt on chrome material, but it's just insanely difficult to get more of that material. If I can't get it, I'll make some red and blue pads with the bolt.

john........when u get more material. chrome pads with blue lightning bolt please
pmjarvisvt2011
Hello John

That would be great. I'm really envious of the replica pads that were created for CW Racing and Hutch, which I believe you are the mastermind behind their development.

I have a 1980 Schwinn Sting in chrome and blue that I'm rebuilding. And, those pads would look great!!!

I see that the lightning bolt sets were once done in blue pads, red lightning bolts with white outlines. I would prefer those, but if it's easier to do just the blue with white lightning bolts, I would be real happy with those, as well. If you ever get to doing them, put me down for 2 sets.

Thanks,

Matt Jarvis - Windsor, VT 05089
