That is quite true- I've heard that shops sometimes swapped in thick, vinyl saddles because they looked more comfortable to people walking into the shop and just wanting a bike to cruise around on. The catalogs from that time spec a B72, but it's always possible a swap at the shop took place. I once had a Sports where that was the case.
