Wright’s Leather Saddle – $30

image of 1973 Wright's British leather saddleThis is the equivalent to the Brooks B17N leather saddle. Overall quality is 6 (out of 10) since there is a tear in the middle (from side-to-side) although I have still ridden long rides on it without problems. I used a tennis ball stuffed underneath which gives added support but also “gives” and flexes when necessary. All rivets are intact.

Marked “A73” on the underside indicates it was made in January of 1973.
Includes rear rails to accept saddle bag.

Update: I just got the tear fixed by Bedo’s Leather Repair in Falls Church – great shop and nice to support a local business. They’ve been around a while and are reasonably priced – I’ll be back.
