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.
