Brooks Team Professional Special Leather Saddle: Vintage 1970's - Large Copper Rivet - Black (Near Mint!)
The joy of vintage leather saddles is every one has aged differently, creating something of a "living" bicycle part with individual personalities and characteristics. Every older leather saddle is it's own creature. This one is just barely broken in and well taken care of, lending to it the supple and lightly aged leather that I love. I prefer this type of hardly ridden/well cared for vintage Brooks to a modern brooks. So comfy, so pretty.
This Team Pro Special features hammered copper rivets and an oily appearing deep black finish.
Near mint, perfectly broken in condition with low miles and a consistent deep finish. Leather is supple and flexible with zero cracking or dryness. Saddle top is level. The ONLY wear to note is the right rear corner has just a touch of light dye/scuff wear, and a few of the copper rivets have a smidge of the green oxidation on the edges. About as good as a vintage saddle gets.
