You can often find the vinyl Brooks "Mattress" saddles for next to nothing -sometimes with a complete parts bike attached...

Tears and splits are easily fixed with vinyl cement if you clean the vinyl well with acetone first and use a bit of scrap vinyl on the inside as a bandage. It'll be as strong a new if you get the mating parts clean and let it all dry for 24 hours before sitting on it.
