vintage italia turbo seat 1987 teal

Got a vintage italia turbo seat from 1987 in teal. This seat came on a bike I bought from a friend while back, but it's never been a perfect fit for me, so I'm thinking of selling it to get something else. It's teal and it's got a couple of scratches and some discoloration of the leather, but isn't in bad condition overall. I know these used to be in demand, but not sure how the market's changed on them since they were re-released. Thought's on what a decent asking price is?

Need photos. You can search ebay for completed sales or auctions. You will get top dollar for pristine saddles, yours doesn't sound pristine.

Couldn't find that exact saddle on ebay and I don't know enough to know which ones would be similar.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

With the number of miles on it, color becomes less pronounced and less a collector's focus. The Bay sold similar ones to yours between $13-27, with one much more like new than yours selling for $40. Sorry...

Maybe you could find someone to swap saddles with. That is a decent rider but worth very little in an outright sale.

Considering you can get a brand new one for <$40 (albeit not in teal), I think you made a good trade
