Wanted - saddle for my 1915 2 3/4hp, or the frame only, or any parts please?
Thanks, Roger

Hi Roger,

Presumably a Brooks B170 would do the trick, but they are getting both hard to find and expensive. I was going to suggest the replicas made by Veteran Triumph Spares but I see they are listed as out of stock http://www.veterantriumph.co.uk/brooks-seat-b170-1543-p.asp

So it looks like even the replicas are hard to find and expensive!

Good luck - they are around.

Leon

Thanks Leon,
I've now managed to buy a saddle frame on e bay, but still need the sheet steel pan. I may make one in fibreglass using my pals saddle as a mould, the fibreglass won't be visible when finished, as both sides of the pan will be covered in leather.
After I bought the saddle frame, I watched a complete original saddle being sold on e bay, stayed at 102 for 5 days, then finally went to 341 - in the last 30 seconds - !!
