odd colored saddles

Hey there. Does anyone know where I can buy or have made a women's saddle in an odd color?
I'm looking for probably either british racing green or a light blue...

I believe Brooks makes a british racing green saddle wich is very nice (but I'm not sure they make if for women).

Brooks makes some models including the Finesse women's racing saddle in British Racing green. It's a very nice dark green.

You said british racing green right? You should check out Brooks. I pretty sure they make quality leather saddles in that color.

hm. I think I'm going to stick with light blue, but I don't want a big fat trek women's saddle so I think I'll try to find a white leather one and dye it...

Hey, I don't know how much you're looking to spend, but I think Brooks makes a saddle in British Racing Green. Check it out!

I saw some guy standing near a bikeshop talking about a green Brooks saddle once.

I've seen a few cool looking leather saddles around in British Racing Green, I think a company named Brooks makes them, it might be worthwhile to look into them.

so I think what you're saying is is that some company... possibly called "Brooks," makes a saddle in British racing green?

I have a friend who skinned a cat, placed it over his saddle, spray painted it green and then rode it around until it rotted off all the while stroking it and calling it 'Brooks'. You could probably do the same. It'd probably be easier to just buy a Brooks brand saddle in racing green, though ...

there is no company called brooks. british racing green is a myth perpetuated by the british government to make people think that the english are good at athletic activity.
