I'm potentially interested, but I'd like to know what's going on with the lump on the left side of the saddle by the rivets.

it’s the top of the saddle rail. I’ve taken a few photos of the underside so you can see.

Thanks for the additional picture and information. I couldn't tell if it was the end of the rail or just a crease forming. Was it secondhand to you?

No, I bought it new a few years ago and tried it, but took it off after a few rides, it probably doesnt even have 50 miles on it. It has been in a box of other saddles ever since.

That's a Swift, not a B17. If you really want to sell it for $65, cool, but someone will get a steal!
