Sat I was at a vintage swap meet. While digging through a box of "stuff" I came across a black leather saddle. It looks just like my brooks B-17 except the rivets are smaller and stick up a little. Under frame looks identical, leather looks a bit thicker. There is a label on both sides that is an oval with SPECIAL in script with the words Fine leather, and made in japan. I picket is up for $15 and plan to put in an my mountain bike. Anyone know anything about these saddles?
I thought there was a picture? There was a Japanese company called Speedic that made leather saddles. I have one on my Miyata 1000 and I pulled off a charity shop find. It has what looks like a fibreglass form on the underside of the saddle.
