    What kind of saddle is this?

    The AD says brooks, but it dosen't have the brooks logo. So what brand is it really?

    The logo says made in Taiwan. Were they making bicycle saddles in Taiwan 30 years ago? I honestly don't know. I do know that, if it doesn't say Brooks, it isn't Brooks. May be a good saddle, though. Brooks didn't have a monopoly.

    Deal is that my Raleigh came with a brooks originally and to restore it a brooks is what it needs.

    it's not a Brooks, it's not leather, either. A vinyl mattress saddle made in Taiwan. Shouldn't be that hard to find a genuine Brooks mattress, I've thrown out a number of them.

    Yep, it's a Cycle Products vinyl mattress saddle. I have one on my Columbia 3-speed.
