how to braid motorcycle levers -
In the book:
Grant, Bruce. Encyclopedia of Rawhide and Leather Braiding. Cambridge, MD: Cornell Maritime Press, Inc., 1972.
Around the levers was done with a 'Two-Bight Turk's-head of Any Length' on pages 376-77 - Plate 154.
The knot used to finish the ends is a 'Two-Thong Turk's-head Button' on pages 274-5 - Plate 109

This is how I've been doing them for many years - it's done with a single strand of leather - it's two ends hanging.
My request would be to see pictures of other folks' lever/s braiding posted here. ...Dave
