I've got one of the newer reissued Regal saddles and dang that thing is hard and not the most comfort saddle. It looks really good though!

Thanks, I've been on the look out for a reasonably priced white concor or regal saddle but decent ones are hard to come by and the new re-issues are crazy expensive for my C & V budget.

I don't think my backside was made for vintage saddles. It doesn't work with a Regal and cringle when I look at the Concor Sette Zero on the shelf in my dining room. It's just too nice to get rid of and too painful to put on any of my bikes. lol.
