My New Fujita Saddle.. Opinions Please

My new to me Fujita saddle arrived today, and it feels as though I have rode on it all my life I was unsure if the color (Brown) would work with the dark metallic red frame, but I think it looks good.

Also opinions on bar wrap and color please. I will also be adding Suntour Barcons when I rewrap.

Belt on a Bridgestone.

Man, what a great looking saddle. Looks just right on that high class Japanese bike.

I think it looks great. As far as bartape goes, I don't know if you're a cotton man, but I'd go blue Newbaum's. I'd probably wrap it right over that existing tape there, helps to add a little bit of cush.

I've got a 1974 Belt Fujita on my bike and I love it, Believe it or not I'm actually breaking it in.

Just did a 39 mile ride today and I was worried that I might get sore but it was comfy the whole ride, great saddles!

Nice. Love the saddle. I'm partial to cloth on the vintage bikes especially with non-aero brake levers. I dunno, red or brown cloth double wrapped or just go over what's there if it's good and snug.
