B17 Narrow rail

How about a B17 Narrow Rail. They only made it for about 3 years from 1959 to 1961. Campagnolo made a special seat-post just for this (type of ) saddle (that I do not own). It sits on my 1971 Carlton Professional. When you look carefully on the top of the saddle, you can actually see where it says Campagnolo. Sorry, i can't read it in any picture so there is no use trying to send that to you.

Not exactly vintage (2007 model), but rocks the Brooks nicely.

My very well worn-in (not by me) 1991 Brooks Professional. Pre Softened! Luckily whoever had this before me had common sit bones spacing.

I love my Brooks. I want to say it only took about 50 miles or so, before it felt broken in. It fits my bones right. Its extremely comfortable. And I think it looks beautiful.

B.17 Champion Standard
