    Got mine!
    They’re a REALLY close match to my beat Brooks saddle. Excellent quality (like everything Scott does), you can’t beat them for $25!

    If you’re thinking about getting some, STOP THINKING and just buy them!

    early schwinn phantom b-6 no-rivet saddle
    Restored as original, all parts original to this saddle with the exception of the reproduction side plates.
    correctly plated and painted with enamel, which retains all the original manufacturing marks, not filled in with powder coat.
    clamp teeth are excellent.
    leather is the best usa made name brand vegetable tanned saddle leather produced, the same type and weight as when new, as original:
    not glued down to the padding.

    First set of pics is a Mesinger saddle restored as original for 1933 Indian Motoplane.
    Same type and weight of leather as original, the owner had the original horsehair pad.
    A few years back i was fortunate to find a small stash of NOS original flax cord that was used on these.
    it's not easy to work with and hand-stitching takes a long time but the result is worth it.

    Second set of pics is a similar saddle (NOS original) bought a couple years ago to see how they were made and how they should look.
