REI at $119.00

So these aren't the same Brooks B-17? Brooks website has the "Standard" B-17 at $145 and it looks the same as each photo of the above listed saddles.
It always pays to shop around for the B-17... and probably the other Brooks saddles.
I bought two about a decade ago and both were bought from the Harris Cyclery because, for some reason, they were way cheaper (even when shipped to Oz) than anywhere else. My other B-17 came with a custom built bike and I probably paid a lot more for it. I've noticed similar variations since where the humble B-17 can vary from expensive to extortionate. Cripes, even just wandering around town and looking at them in bike shops shows quite a variation.
