Cool, thanks for the replies!

The catalog says it came with RSX, but probably got swapped out for the Sora.
Sounds like a deal-breaker, especially at a $325 asking price.

For someone coming...

I may have answered one of my own questions.
Bikepedia says it's a 26/36/46 triple, with 7-speed 11-24 rear cogs.

This saddle arrived today, and looks great.
It's not light, but, I knew that, and neither is a B-17.
Very comfortable during a brief fitting ride, likely more so as it is broken in.
