Seen these on eBay and they're not cheap but I want nubuk for my current build.
However whilst the ad states 1990 are they real NOS or modern repros and not worth the outlay?

Modern reproduction. Available cheaper than that, for example: https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/SASITU199 ... buk-saddle

The rails are the giveaway, on the original they’re closer to the saddle body.

Thank you all, wasn't aware the repros were available elsewhere. Duly ordered from Chain reaction.

For a while, Decathlon had the black repros for 42 EUR a couple of years ago
