Is the Honey colored Brooks saddle close to the orangeish color you need?

If you can get a plastic saddle, then you can spray paint it with vinyl paint. Vinyl paint works well on saddles and looks pretty original too. You MIGHT have to primer it with white and then paint it in Orange.

DO NOT use regular paint. It won't dry correctly on the vinyl saddle. Spend the money to get vinyl upholstery paint. You can get it at the automotive stores. You might have to order the orange paint special.

Good luck.

Nah nah, forget about paint. Buy a saddle you like, don't have to be new, say $10 on eBay. Then have it appoistered the way you like, should be about $20, plus you could get it comfy and all that.
