The picture isn't great, but it's all I have. Does this thing still have any life left in it? I'm thinking of buying it secondhand... Will it 'rebreak' in to fit my bum? It's a B17 Narrow; I used to ride a B17 but found it too wide for my style of riding (plus i'm skinny so i guess my sit bones are more narrow?)

It doesn't look too weathered. I'd say go for it if the price is right. Add some proofhide once every 10 months and it should work fine. Check the underside for major splits. I'd say its probably good. Enjoy. It has a nice vintage look to it.

That seat is in awesome shape. Just about broken in.

It's dangerous. After you buy it, send it to me for proper disposal. Together we can make the world safer.
