Cool vid on how Brooks saddles are made

No wonder we love Brooks saddles. Check out this video. Wow, they are still made the old fashioned way - even with the original old machines from the 1940's and '50's.

Did you ever get a new Brooks saddle in the box? Man, what prestige and richness.

Have a look in two parts:

Thank you for that Mike!

I picked up my first Brooks B17 in May for my touring bike.

I'm getting another for my road bike and I don't care how heavy it is.
